Wildcats see shake up in management

June 17, 2006

Albany--After serving as the managing partner for the Wildcat's arena football team for two years, Mike Storen is stepping down.

It's part of several organizational changes made by the team's ownership committee. So far, the Cat's have been off to a rough start in the season, winning only one of the ten games played.

The committee has brought in a consultant, Barry Tarranova.  From examining the team's coach to the players' performance, Tarranova says his immediate goal is to improve this year's remaining season and have a better record than last year.

Wildcat's Vice president of sales and operations, Darren McPhail, has been promoted to general manager.  John Hunt Jr. will now serve as the team's managing partner.

Storen says he's not bitter about the changes. He will continue to serve as a liaison and consultant for the team.

"The reality is our record is one in nine. That's not acceptable. We have an obligation in my mind to insure we present a competitive product. One in nine is not a competitive product. I would say, no I haven't done a very good job running the football team. I think that's true," says Mike Storen.

"This is not a quick fix. We're going to implement strategies to insure long term success, that being on the day to day operation of the team, interaction of the coaching staff, the business side," says Barry Tarranova.

The Wildcats have six more games left in the season.
