EDMONTON - It must have been the career version of a rebound relationship for Dave Jamieson.

After spending just one season as president of the Edmonton Rush lacrosse club, he is back to playing the professional field as the two officially parted ways on Wednesday.

Except Jamieson wasn’t the one doing the dumping.

“It was a contract without an ending, so when we embarked on this, it was, ‘Well, let’s do a season and see how it goes,” he said. “I was informed (Wednesday) that the Rush was going to go obviously in a different direction that doesn’t include me.

“But — at least at this point — their thought is they will not have a president perform the role that I performed.”

In case anyone was expecting a juicy he-said, she-said, the head communication’s person for the Rush is in Vegas and the club is offering no statement in regards to the decision.
