Chilliwack – In a rather blunt statement on their website, the Chilliwack Chiefs announced that Head Coach and General Manager Jason Tatarnic was ousted from his position.
Brian Maloney has been named Head Coach and General Manager of the Chilliwack Chiefs, effective immediately. Maloney, a Chiefs’ Alumnus, and previously Associate Coach and Assistant General Manager of the Club, will be behind the bench as the team competes in the 2018 RBC Cup at Prospera Centre May 12 – 20.
President Glen Ringdal said the decision to elevate Maloney was made by Chiefs’ ownership on Friday.
No other reason(s) were given.
The Chiefs were eliminated in the first round of this year’s BCHL playoffs.
