The Spokane Shock were back in the news Thursday with yet another controversial move. The Shock sacked head coach Rob Keefe after two seasons, the first ending in an ArenaBowl championship and the second ending in a playoff loss to Arizona.

You can read about the reasons for Keefe's dismissal, both the organization's and Keefe's opinions, and the search for a successor here in an article that will run in Friday's S-R.

Keefe was scheduled to throw the ceremonial first pitch at the Spokane Indians game Thursday night, but that plan was revised.
