Head Coach and General Manager of the Humboldt Broncos Nathan Oystrick announced he is stepping down.
“I have stepped away from the Humboldt Broncos. Despite the extreme stress and constant pressure of working with the organization, I gave them everything I possibly could and am proud of their performance, and mine, this season.” Oystrick said on Twitter.
He was hired in July, after the team bus crash that killed 16 members of the junior hockey team, including former coach Darcy Haugan.
The Broncos said in a statement Scott Barney, who was an assistant coach under Oystrick, will serve as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.
The team thanked Oystrick for his work and wished him the best in his future endeavours.
However no reason was given as to why Oystrick and the team decided to part ways.
