HohenseeDES MOINES, Iowa — The Iowa Barnstormers are searching for a new head coach after choosing not to renew Mike Hohensee’s contract, Barnstormers owner Jeff Lamberti confirmed.

In three years, the 53-year-old led the Stormers to a 19-35 record. The University of Minnesota alum is an AFL Hall of Fame coach, but failed to get the Barnstormers to the playoffs.

Lamberti told Channel 13 no decision has been made on the Barnstormers’ future. Lamberti had said in late July the Barnstormers are considering all options, including a move to a different league.

Hohensee tweeted a picture of Des Moines as he left town with the text, “Thanks for the memories”.
