The Salmon Arm Silverbacks announced Nov. 30 that they had made a coaching change.
An article on the ‘Backs website stated that associate coach Dan Cioffi had been released from his position.
“My vision for this hockey club differs from Dan’s an enormous amount. I feel that our club needed to have one unified vision and we needed to make this change in order to accomplish our goal. As an organization we wish Dan all the best and thank him for the time he spent in Salmon Arm,” stated head coach and general manager Colin O’Hara.
The SilverBacks have promoted Jayson Reardon to fill the vacant position.
Reardon recently played for O’Hara and the announcement noted he is familiar with the expectations that are put in front of the group.
