Houston Dash mutually part ways with Head Coach Randy Waldrum


HOUSTON – The Houston Dash have announce they have mutually parted ways with original head coach Randy Waldrum.

Waldrum was named Dash head coach in 2014, after a 15-year run as head coach of the Notre Dame women's program.

Waldrum has been offered an advisory role with the club, should he choose to stay on.

"Randy is an excellent coach and a great man. He has been fully committed to the Dash and the pursuit of our goals over the last three and a half years," Dash President Chris Canetti said.

"We both agreed today that it's in the best interest of the team to have a new voice leading the group," Canetti added in his statement.

Waldrum was appointed the first head coach in Dash history on Jan. 3, 2014.

"This is a tough decision to make, but we all want the team to do well," Waldrum said.

"This group has the talent to fight for a playoff spot, and there are a lot of games left to reach that goal.   I was responsible to thank the organization, the players and fans for a very memorable tenure here in Houston."
