The Osoyoos Coyotes and its fans haven’t seen the last of Ken Law.
The only head coach and general manager the Coyotes have employed since the club’s inception in 2010 has taken the head coaching and Assistant GM position with Okanagan-division rival Kelowna Chiefs.
Law was introduced as the Chiefs’ new head coach and assistant GM this morning.
“Our organization continues to grow and is always looking to improve,” said Chiefs General Manager Grant Sheridan. “After a very successful season last year, we wanted to add another highly qualified individual to our Staff and Ken Law is the perfect fit.
“Ken, who we have known and coached against for many years, has always been very successful at any level that he has coached.”
Carl Poole, Law’s longtime assistant coach in Osoyoos, will join the Chiefs as well.
Law had served as the only head coach in the Coyotes’ storied eight-year existence. He guided the team to a league championship in its inaugural 2010-11 season and six regular-season Okanagan division championships.
But the Coyotes, although reaching the Okanagan/Shuswap Conference championships five times in the following seven years, could not repeat their first-season success.
Law finished with a combined 354-147-9 record over eight seasons with the Coyotes.
