OFFICIAL TEAM PRESS RELEASE
The Vernon Vipers would like to announce that General Manager and Head Coach
Jason Williamson has stepped down from his position due to personal reasons.
Williamson was set to enter his 4th year as the bench boss and 8th season overall.
Last season he guided the team to a conference title and a semi final appearance at
the RBC Cup.
Vernon Vipers President and Owner Duncan Wray respects the decision. “Jason has
decided he needs some time away from the game to get his affairs in order and I
respect that. He has been great for our hockey club and will be missed however we
must move forward”
The club will immediately begin the search for Williamson’s replacement in the
mean time Kevin Kraus has been named interim Head Coach while Eric Godard will
increase his role as an assistant coach.
The Vipers will play a final pair of exhibition games this weekend with Prince
George visiting Friday (7pm) and the return match-up in Prince George on Saturday.
The regular season home opener for Vernon is September 27th vs West Kelowna.
