The Hood Sweeney Adelaide 36ers are looking for a new head coach after deciding not to re-appoint incumbent Scott Ninnis next season.
In a statement released to media on Monday afternoon, the Sixers said that it had been a difficult decision to part ways with Ninnis, who has been part of the club as either a player or coach since 1985.
"The Hood Sweeney Adelaide 36ers have concluded their review for season 2009/10," the statement said.
"Today the Hood Sweeney Adelaide 36ers met with Scott Ninnis to discuss the review. At this meeting it was decided that the 36ers would need to seek a new Head Coach for season 2010/11.
"The Hood Sweeney 36ers acknowledge Scott Ninnis' contribution to the history of the Adelaide 36ers in his roles as player, assistant coach and head coach. Scott has been involved with the club since 1985 which made the decision around positioning the club for the future a difficult one for all concerned.
"The Hood Sweeney Adelaide 36ers will now initiate the recruitment of a new coach and will be looking locally and overseas to find the best candidates for the job."
The Sixers finished last this season for the frst time in club history with a league-worst 10-18 record.
