Owner Terry Pegula is excited about their new hire, citing a new face and fresh perspective to be paramount in getting the team back to the playoffs.
“A lot of teams just keep recycling the same losers who got them into the mess to begin with. We’re not going to do that. Doug Whaley found Ross through a corporate head hunter. We interviewed him, liked we what saw and as promised – we were sure not to include team President Russ Brandon in the process. With Russ out of the mix, we all agreed that Ross would be the best fit to be our coach” said Pegula.
Even though Brennan brings a new look to this organization, he stressed the importance of continuity in his opening remarks.
“This team is close. We were 7-9 this year. Last year 8-8, the year before 9-7. See how close that is? Some would say we’re actually regressing but what the hell do they know? I know we’re pretty damn close. Pretty damn close to finishing 6-10 next year”.
