Here is a segment of the press release from Team Alpha Male:
Team Alpha Male, a world renowned Mixed Martial Arts team based out of Sacramento, CA is looking to fill the position of head coach. TAM will be taking applicants from around the world over the next few months and will be looking to fill the position no later than May 24th. The team is comprised of current and former UFC fighters Urijah Faber, Chad Mendes, Joseph Benevidez, Danny Castillo, TJ Dillashaw, Chris Holdsworth, Andre Fili, Paige VanZant, David Mitchell and Justin Buchholz.
Duane Ludwig, a former UFC fighter himself, took over the head coaching position at Team Alpha Male in December of 2012. Once Ludwig became the coach, the team looked better and performed better than ever before. Urijah Faber, TJ Dillashaw, Joseph Benavidez, and Chad Mendes all had a fantastic 2013 campaigns. The team also introduced TUF winner, Chris Holdsworth, and exciting prospect, Andre Fili into the UFC.
As of now there is no word as to why the team cut Ludwig loose. FanSided will keep you updated when any pertinent information is made available.
