Stingrays' head coach leaving for AHL's Charlotte Checkers

July 23, 2018 - South Carolina Stingrays head coach Ryan Warsofsky is leaving to be an assistant coach for the AHL's Charlotte Checkers.

Warsofsky has been the head coach for the last two years. In those two years led the Rays to the Kelley Cup Finals and in the 2018 season led them to the best season in franchise history.

Prior to being the head coach, Warsofsky served as an assistant coach for three years.

At the announcement of his departure, Warsofsky had many people to thank and expressed his love and appreciation for the Stingrays organization in this quote:

"This was a very hard decision because my pro coaching career started with the Stingrays organization. I love this organization and the people I work with. I want to thank Owner Todd Halloran for his support and I know the organization is in great hands with him. Our operations staff in Spencer Carbery, Rick Covard, Cameron Parker and Steve Bergin have been a pleasure to work with over the years. Lastly, I need to thank Rob Concannon. He and Spencer took a chance on me and gave me my first pro coaching job. Rob and I have a special relationship, I loved working with him and he will always be a friend. He's supported me since day one and I cannot thank him enough. I am excited about this opportunity with Charlotte and I will always have a special place in my heart for the fans, boosters and everyone involved with the Stingrays organization."
