Erie, PA (January 9) – Erie BayHawks head coach Bill Peterson is taking a leave of absence from the team for medical reasons.  The length of his leave is uncertain and Peterson hopes to return to the team soon.

Peterson suffered a concussion during the team’s game on January 4 when BayHawks forward Branden Dawson inadvertently collided with Peterson on the sideline.  Peterson did not coach the team during their last two games on January 6 and 7.  Assistant coach Norman Richardson is coaching the team in Peterson’s absence.

Erie hosts the Windy City Bulls on Wednesday at 7pm at Erie Insurance Arena.
