Tyrants part with Head Coach Hugh English

Manchester Tyrants have announced that they have decided to ‘part ways’ with their Head Coach Hugh English after a year in charge.

The club have now released the following statement:
"Coach English has done a huge amount for the team since it’s inception. After years at the heart of the defence, Coach English stepped in to fill the void in Tyrant coaching. He has played a significant part in the Tyrants evolution since becoming head coach in 2011.

“However, to continue the Tyrant's development, the Committee and Captains feel that the team needs to move in a different direction.

“The team would like to thank Hugh for all that he has done; we wish him the best of luck for the future."

The Tyrants were on a bye week this week, but Dbl Coverage understands the team trained today without Coach English, in preparation for next week’s fixture against Liverpool Fury.

The club are in talks with a few other coaches about joining them, both as Head and positional coaches.
In the meantime, the team will not have an interim head coach, but will be directed by a collective effort of the other coaches, supported by the teams committee and captains.

Dbl Coverage will of course keep you updated on any future developments.

Initial Reactions to Week 13 of College Football

Still number 1

- ND stops all the madness at the number 1 spot and takes care of business against USC to book their spot in Miami.

- If anyone every wonders why their is so much SEC love around the place compared to other conferences just look at some of the rivalry games last night: Florida beat FSU, South Carolina beat Clemson, Vandy beat Wake Forest and Georgia crushed Georgia Tech. Not a good day for the ACC.

- Does anyone else think there's something seriously wrong with a 7-5 Wisconsin team going to the Big 10 Championship game??

- Stanfords win against UCLA sets the two teams up to play again on Friday night in the Pac-12 Championship game, meaning no Oregon, which is the first time in the Chip Kelly era that the Ducks won't be champions.

- Lane Kiffin really had a bad night calling the Notre Dame game, not going for another FG to bring them within a score late and also nullifying a TD with a timeout, not sure if he's cut out for the top spot.

- Who would have thought that after having 5 straight wins to open the season that West Virginia would only become bowl eligible this week against Iowa State?

- Two games that I watched that everyone should go back and see if you didn't: Ohio State v Michigan and Florida State v Florida. Both games were real classics within their rivalries and both had some HUGE hits in them, really good football games.

- Massive congratulations to Montee Ball who set the NCAA TD record with his 79th career score.

- After the Heisman debate this week, the plot gets a little murkier. Manti Te'o has now lead his team to an undefeated season and snagged another big interception on his resume whilst Jonny Football had 5 total TDs and broke the SEC single season yardage record against Mizzou. Tough to call.

- In football related news I asked my girlfriend to pick the winners of some of the games, she went 6-7, basing her picks purely off of names she went for Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State, Florida, Stanford and Notre Dame, with her only blip being Oregon State who she was torn about choosing. Maybe there's something in the names...
