Komets head coach out, team searching for replacement

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — Fort Wayne’s hockey team is making a change in the 2019-20 season with a new head coach.

The Fort Wayne Komets announced today that the current head coach, Gary Graham, will not be returning for the next season.

Graham was an assistant coach for four years from 2008-09 to 2011-12 and has served as head coach and director of player personnel the last six seasons since 2013-14.

“Gary did a great job during his 10 seasons with the Komets,” Fort Wayne’s Governor and President Michael Franke said. “We will honor the final year of Gary’s contract. This will give him the opportunity to land a new position in the hockey world while still under contract.”

Graham finishes with a Fort Wayne head coaching career record of 251-130-51 for 553 points and a .640 winning percentage over 432 regular season games.

The team said they are currently looking for a new head coach as they prepare for their 68th season, starting on October 12.
