Paul Gait Named Knighthawk Coach

Now there are two.  Paul Gait was named the Knighthawks coach today after coach Paul Suggate resigned from the team on Wednesday. 

This could actually work for the Knighthawks because of the relationship of the Gait brothers.  Gary Gait was a coach for the Colorado Mammoth when they won the title against the Bandits in 2006.  Now Paul Gait has the chance to match his brother in Championship coaching wins, while coaching his brother. 

For the this season of the Knighthawks, it probably will still be ugly.  A new coach coming trying to adapt a to a system or implement his own two weeks before the season starts can cause issues.  With a rough start in a tough Eastern Conference, a slow start could kill their playoff chances for the second year in a row.
