Ice Hockey: Cardiff coach resolves differences with club
Thursday 20 November 2003
The Cardiff Devils confirmed yesterday that their coach, Glenn Mulvenna, will remain with the Elite League club for the rest of the season.
Mulvenna had resigned after learning that the club had been in contact with the former Bracknell Bees and Belfast Giants coach, Dave Whistle, who was sacked by the German side, Iserlohn Roosters, earlier this season. But now Mulvenna has negotiated a new deal with the Welsh club and has "re-committed to the Devils".
Whistle had, in fact, never been offered the job, but Mulvenna admitted: "It was enough to make me feel uncomfortable and believe I was being undermined. I did resign because I felt I had no choice. Now, though, after hours of talking, I know the club are right behind me.
"There was never a point when I truly wanted to leave. This is a fantastic club with passionate fans who bleed pure Devils red. I felt crushed when I had to make the decision."
Cardiff's director of hockey, Shannon Hope, said: "We'll hold our hands up and say we made mistakes. It was not handled as well as it could have been. I take responsibility. The outcome is Glenn Mulvenna is in total charge of all team matters."
