Former Coach Wells not bitter, eager to face Fever

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - After losing at Spokane Saturday, the Fever turn their attention to next Saturday's game at Stockton.  The Lightning offense is coached by none other than Tony Wells. The former Fever head coach was fired in October because of his legal issues. However, charges in Florida and Kentucky were dropped within two months. This season, Wells caught on as offensive coordinator in Stockton, and says he hopes to be a head coach again in the aAF2. This Saturday, facing the team that fired him will have some extra meaning.
"I'd be lying if I said it didn't," he said.  "It's a big game for our team, because we're trying to turn the corner as an organization. But for me too. It's one of those personal things where you want to prove to everybody that you're a good coach. I cleared my name and now I'm moving on. No, I don't have hard feelings but I think things could have been a little bit different if they had listened to me a little bit."
