So at the end of last season, as general manager Mark Lamb had a dismal coaching record with the Prince George Cougars, he said he was definitely going to hire a coach and he would not do both jobs.
Now he is the new coach.
Looks to me like this could be a money issue as it's one less salary. Combined with the new prices for seat selections, the team is hoping to bring the fans back.
I for one was happy with Richard Matvichuk and he only had so much talent to work with. I am disappointed a new coach was not hired and really don't think Mark is the guy but wish him best of luck.
