The post explained that the Board of Directors has made the decision to discontinue the name and the placeholder names above will be in place while they "go through the process of determining a new name befitting our storied team."
The change comes after years of petitions and public outcries for the team to drop the name.
It's unclear at this time what the team's final name will be.
