Can anyone tell me how they select Nahl coaches?

Just watched a good Fairbanks team play another alaska team Kenai

 

Kenai coach looked clueless on line selection and players

Kept going back to weak lines, spotty def combinations, lack luster power play, what seemed like no concept of synergies, how do they vett these guys, looked like an easy win but under severly coached

I would have to assume like any other job is filled.  Interviews and selection process by the ownership team.  

 

 

I watched 2 NAHL games this weekend and I didnt see any of this.

Kenai was filled by low bid process.  Not kidding unfortunately.


There is a difference between someone who plays hockey, and a Hockey Player. which one are you?

Not unheard of, ML.   The Chicago White Sox have for years hired managers with zero experience that will work for minimum wage. 

 

Assuming the poster, who just signed up, is asking an honest question I don't think hiring an NAHL coach is any different than a USHL or NAHL coach.  What is his resume like, his philosophies, his success his contacts, his experience, his ability to connect with ownership amongst a whole host of reasons to be hired or not.

 

NAHL is serious hockey that owners pay a lot to participate in.

Don't know anything about the coach. but he has been an assistant in the NAHL prior and coached in NA3HL.

 

His team is the 2nd worst in the league record wise, so maybe it's the players.

Maybe it is the players.  Then again, in the NAHL the coaches pick the players.

Kenai River parts ways with head coach Jeff Worlton
APRIL 26, 2017

The Kenai River Brown Bears, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), have announced that head coach Jeff Worlton will not return on the bench next season. 
 
A nation-wide search has begun to find a replacement, as part of a rebirth of the ten-year old program. The Brown Bears have been members of the NAHL since the 2007-08 season.
 
Last week, the Kenai Peninsula Youth Foundation announced that an outpouring of community support to raise funding and awareness was successful and that the Brown Bear program will continue its NAHL hockey operations.
 
In two seasons with the Bears, Worlton amassed a record of 14-66-5-1, taking over during the second half of the 2015-16 season. This year the Brown Bears finished 12-46-2. 
 
“The Brown Bears would like to thank Jeff for his contributions. He brought a hard work ethic and competitiveness to our program,” said Brown Bears General Manager Nate Keil.
 
The Bears will announce a new coaching staff in the near future, and will hold their first pre-draft tryout camp at the Subway Centre in Anchorage, Alaska on May 26th-28th.
