The Portland Thunder will have a new head coach for the third straight season. Former head coach Mike Hohensee and his coaching staff have agreed not to renew their contracts.

They informed the team this afternoon. A coaching search will begin immediately.




One possible option would be Andy Olson, as he’s expected to be let go when the Spokane Shock moved to the IFL. They would join the Iowa Barnstormers – Hohensee’s former team before arriving in Portland – who joined the league in 2014 following one last AFL season.

The Thunder management wanted to thank the coaching staff for their service to the team, the press release said.

Coach Ho has been primarily a coach in the Midwest. He could become the head coach of the new San Antonio Talons head coach when the team is re-born soon.

Besides battling for a playoff bid with the now defunct Las Vegas Outlaws, he also lost his mother.
The Thunder lost in the first round of the playoffs to the San Jose SaberCats, 55-28, following a 5-13 season.

He originally signed a one-year deal with the Thunder last Sept. The 2015 season was his 29th as a player or coach in the Arena Football League.
