Coach Marty Murray leaving Minotauros for Sioux Falls

By  | 

MINOT, N.D. - Minotauros head coach and general manager Marty Murray is leaving the team to take the same positions with the Sioux Falls Stampede of the USHL.

Murray says it was a difficult decision, built on being in the Minot community for years.

"It was so much more than just looking at a step up in the ladder in my coaching career. Minot's been home for us for 15 years. [Sioux Falls] was something that grabbed our attention, and we realized that this could be a fit. We decided as a family it was a good challenge for us and a new adventure, so we decided to take the opportunity," Murray said.

The Stampede finished the 2019-20 season with 49 points, good for 6th place in the 8-team Western Conference. Shane Wagner takes over as Minotauros head coach.
