SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Assistant coach Duane Ticknor has been named interim head coach of the Sioux Falls Skyforce. Current Head Coach Tony Fritz has been relieved of his duties.
“Tony led us to the best regular season record since joining the NBA D-League last year but unfortunately this season has not gone as planned and we feel it is in the best interest of the franchise to make a change,” said Skyforce owner/president Mike Heineman. “We’re confident that Coach Ticknor will put a competitive product on the court.”
Ticknor, who served as head coach of the Dakota Wizards for two seasons (07-09), is in his second season with the Skyforce. He led the Wizards to the postseason in each of his two seasons in Bismarck, N.D. and his 2007-08 squad finished 29-21 to win the Central Division crown. In 2008-09 the Wizards defeated the Central Division champion Iowa Energy in the first round of the playoffs before falling to the Utah Flash in the league semifinals.
