SFU's recreation and athletics department is working closely with Clan football alumni to find a new football coach following the Dec. 8 resignation of coach Frank Boehres after just one season on the job. The alumni group is headed by local defence lawyer Glen Orris and former Saskatchewan Roughrider Lyall Woznesensky.

The resignation “was Frank's decision and is by no means a reflection of the team, its performance during the 2006 season or his ability as a coach,” says recreation and athletics director Wilf Wedmann. “We would have preferred that Frank had stayed, but respect his decision.”

Wedmann adds that before his resignation, Boehres submitted a report outlining some of the football program's challenges, which the department is now addressing.

Boehres replaced 24-season head coach Chris Beaton in April 2006, after serving as assistant coach at the University of Alberta. The team finished 0-7-1 in 2006 under his leadership, its second straight season without a victory in the Canada West conference of Canadian Interuniversity Sport.
