Bears Head Coach Mark French Will Not Return in 2013-14

HERSHEY, Pa.– The HERSHEY BEARS announced today that head coach Mark French will not return for the 2013-2014 season. The announcement was made by Washington Capitals Vice President/GM George McPhee and BEARS President/GM Doug Yingst.

“We commend Mark for his commitment, leadership and diligent work with the HERSHEY BEARS,” Yingst stated. “He is an excellent coach and an even better person. We wish him well in his future endeavors.”

The search for the team’s 24th head coach is currently underway.

I am baffled by this move by Hershey. Bears fans aren't exactly the happiest with the move either. The team struggled this year bc of Oates/Johanson screwing things up the first half of the season and also forcing French to coach their way as opposed to doing what he was doing before.

And to add, the the vibe I'm getting is Yingst wasn't making this decision either.
