Robert: St. John’s Edge head coach steps down
The St. John’s Edge have announced that Head Coach Doug Plumb has stepped down from his duties with the team in exchange for another opportunity in his home province of British Columbia.
Associate Coach Steven Marcus will now take over as Interim Head Coach for the remainder of the 2019 season.
“It has been an incredible two years in St. John’s and I’ll miss this town and this organization – so many have become like family to me,” Plumb says. “I’ve been awarded a personal and professional opportunity on the West Coast of Canada that helps my family in an incredible way. While basketball is a massive part of my life, I’m excited to move home to British Columbia to build on the next professional chapter of my life and be closer to family. St. John’s, the Edge, it’s fans and this community have been wonderful, and this is an experience I will never forget. It was a pleasure to come to work every morning and serve this organization.”
A source close to NTV has confirmed Plumb has accepted a job with Nike. The exact details of his new position are not yet known.
