Coach Earle leaving Team Homan

In a post on Team Homan's web site, Earle Morris announced that he's stepping away from his coaching duties with the Canadian champs. The coach said that the time commitment to continue with the gals was a a factor in his decision. 

To be a part of their amazing success has been very satisfying and I want to thank the team for this tremendous opportunity. While it has been a privilege and an honour to have coached Team Homan for the past two seasons, regrettably, the time away from family has been difficult.  Regardless, I will always be the team’s No. 1 fan, or at least tied for first place with many others!

Morris, who is 68, added that while he's leaving Team Homan, he's going to stay involved in high performance coaching but not with any team. Rather he'll contribute through clinics and research.

He coached Homan's team to a Canadian junior title in 2010 and also helped out Jennifer Jones' rink in 2012. He was also the coach for his son, John's rink in junior while also helping out the Australian national team program from 2006-08.
