Two Familiar Faces Behind the Bench

Coaches Eric Esser and Mike Rogusky will return for the 2013-14 season

It has been a whirlwind of an off season with the search for a new coach. There were close to 30 applications received for the coaching position from candidates as far away as Texas, Colorado, Canada, and even Finland. However, after talking with a number of these qualified candidates, including two former NHL players, one factor or another prohibited them from making the full time commitment. As the time ran out and the season right around the corner, coach Esser and Rogusky did not want to see the team fold because of a lack of coaching staff. So they agreed to stay on for another year and can hopefully bring the Bullets once again back to the conference playoffs. The coaching position will remain open until it is filled but behind the bench this season will see the two familiar faces.
