November 2, 2005 - Intense Football League (Intense) - San Angelo Stampede Express News Release

The San Angelo Stampede Express of the Intense Football League has made many changes this off-season. The team has new offices, a new name, new logos, new colors, new lower ticket prices, a new General Manager, and will have many new players. Today, one more change has been announced, there will be a new field boss next season.

Chris Simpson has been relieved of duties as Head Coach of the San Angelo Stampede Express. Simpson posted a 3 - 11 record last season as the San Angelo Head Coach. The organization felt it was time for a change to accomplish its stated goal for 2006 to WIN FOOTBALL GAMES.

"We appreciate all the professionalism, hard work, and dedication Chris brought to his job during his tenure as Stampede Express Coach. He was a tremendous asset to the organization in his planning, as well as, the duties he performed both on the field and in the front office. We wish him the best of luck, and know he will bring all these same qualities to wherever he goes from here," said co-Owner Darlene Jones.

The search for Simpson's replacement will begin immediately. "We will post the position on the website and review the applications we have received during the off-season. The organization will be diligent in finding the best candidate to help us win the President's Cup in the 2006 season," said Jones.

The Stampede Express will begin their 3rd season in the spring of 2006, with 7 action packed games at the San Angelo Coliseum.
