The Indy Hawks announce that Carl Wayne Denney, Head Coach the past 7 years, has stepped down as the Indy Hawks Head Coach. The decision to leave the team came on his desire to seek new endeavors.
Displaying his custom hard-nosed toughness, Denney was able to guide the Indianapolis team to the USADB championship game 5 out of the past 7 years, winning championships in 2008 and 2009 with 2nd place finishes in ’05, ’06 and ’10. The team has amassed a collective 179-49 record in this remarkable 7-year span, including a 35-4 season in ’07 and a 32-7 season in ’08.
Also, Indianapolis has captured 8 consecutive Central region championships (combined CAAD and CBAD titles) and sent numerous players to various international competitions as Team USA representatives. Many players during his tenure have been chosen for regional and national honors.
An hard-working and intense individual, Denney was honored thrice as the USADB Coach of the Year (2005, 2008 and 2011) with this season’s honor coming on the heels of the Hawks’ surprising 5th place finish with a team consisting of only 7 players.
