As the off season coaching carousel turns, Cedar Rapids River Kings announced earlier today that they have hired Victor Mann as their head coach. Mann comes to Cedar Rapids after his second stint with the CIFs Texas Revolution. Prior to that he was General Manager and Head Coach to the CIFs Omaha Beef. Mann was named Coach of the Year in 2016. River King’s General Manager, Reggie Harris, said, “We felt it was important to get a coach with a winning record and mentality to help move this franchise in a positive direction.” The River Kings were tied for last place along with expansion San Diego Strike Force with a 1-13 record this past season.
