Chris Siegfried, the original coach of the Spokane Shock, was fired from the Pittsburgh Power on Monday, reported the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
The team promptly named defense coordinator Derek Stingley interim head coach, and then said NFL veteran quarterback Mike Tomczak would join the team to coordinate the offense.
"The Power thank Coach Siegfried for his commitment to the organization, the City of Pittsburgh, our fans, and wish him well in his future endeavors."
Siegfried told the Tribune-Review, "It just didn't work out."
The Power missed the playoffs last season and are just 2-8 this year. He leaves the team with an 11-17 career record, including a win over his former team, the Shock, in the 2011 season.
Siegfried was the Shock's first coach, leading the team to a 14-2 record and an ArenaCup Championship in 2006. He moved on to coach the Arkansas Twisters, and has also worked for the Kansas City Brigade, the Jacksonville Sharks, the South Georgia Wildcats and the Cape Fear Wildcats.
