Bismarck Bucks fire head coach after workplace grievance filed

National Sports

Bismarck, ND – The Bismarck Bucks have fired Head Coach and General Manager Richard Davis after the owners took a series of steps over the last two weeks.

According to owner Phil Sallberg, last week, during the Bucks bye week, Richard Davis along with his wife Judy Davis, who also served as an employee, were told they could no longer work in the Bismarck Event Center due to multiple workplace grievances filed against them over the past two years.

Earlier in the week, KX Sports contacted BEK Communications, who is part owner of the Bucks, and asked about the matter. The representative would not confirm Richard Davis and Judy Davis had been removed from the Bismarck Event Center.

The owner also said in the past two weeks, the organization took further administrative action against Richard Davis, which included stripping him of his title of general manager and the related job responsibilities.

Wednesday night, the owners informed Richard Davis and Judy Davis that they had been relieved from their duties.

Paco Martinez, who served as the offensive coordinator, will take over as the interim head coach.

This Saturday, Bismarck has a home game against the Salina Liberty at the Bismarck Event Center at 7 p.m.
