Morris quits as coach of Jones rink
By QMI Agency
Ottawa’s Earle Morris has stepped down as coach of Jennifer Jones’ Winnipeg rink.
Morris took on the role last summer for the 2010-11 season with the understanding that the position would be examined and a decision made on a three-year commitment leading up to the 2014 Olympic trials.
“Coaching a team with Olympic aspirations is a time-consuming commitment that requires significant dedication that I was unsure that I could promise,” said Morris. “That is not the frame of mind in which to enter a three-year agreement.”
Longtime Jones coach Janet Arnott, whose departure from that role a year ago paved the way for Morris, is returning to her former duties.
