Dubuque Fighting Saints Coach Leaving at End of This Season
Dubuque Fighting Saints Head Coach and General Manager, Jason Lammers, has been named the head coach of the Niagara University Purple Eagles. His tenure with the Purple Eagles will begin at the conclusion of the 2016–17 season with the Fighting Saints.
“It will have always been an honor and a privilege to serve as the head coach of the Fighting Saints, and to wear the D,” said Lammers. “This is an elite organization here in Dubuque, and we are blessed to have a tremendous ownership group, staff, and fanbase. I want to thank them all for what they do to make this place elite.”
Lammers was hired as the head coach and general manager of the Dubuque Fighting Saints on July 16, 2015, the third to hold that title since the franchise’s revival in 2010. His prior coaching journey brought him significant amounts of success in Dubuque. Lammers led the Saints to a 75-36-9 record throughout the regular season, a berth in the Clark Cup Final in his first season, and a return to the Eastern Conference Finals in his second season, with the playoff run still ongoing.
