The South Carolina Stingrays will be announcing their new head coach on Wednesday, July 6 at 1:30 in a press conference open to all fans and the public. For those unable to attend, the Stingrays will also be live-streaming the press conference on Facebook.
The press conference will take place in the Montague Terrace of the North Charleston Coliseum. Fans are encouraged to attend and asked to enter through the the Season Ticket Holder/Handicap entrance on the Mantague side of the building.
The search for a new head coach began after Spencer Carbery accepted the job to be the head coach of the Saginaw Spirit of the OHL.
The new coach will be the seventh head coach in club history. The coach will have no easy role in filling the shoes of Carbery. Carbery had the most head coaching wins in Stingrays history with a record of 207-115-38. Carbery won the John Brophy Award as the ECHL’s Coach of the Year in 2014, and was the runner-up for the award in 2015 and 2016.
One potential candidate is assistant coach Ryan Warsofsky. “We believe Assistant Coach Ryan Warsofsky has done a great job over the last three seasons and is a leading candidate for the head coach position.” said Stingrays President Rob Concannon in a June 21 press conference.
Whoever the new coach is, they will look to continue to improve the Stingrays` point totals. The new coach will also be looking to guide the Stingrays to a third consecutive Eastern Conference Finals appearance and look to capture the fourth Kelly Cup in team history.
