Miners seeking new coach, GM

Press Release

RED LAKE, Ont.–The Red Lake Miners of the SIJHL are looking to fill the role of GM/head coach for the upcoming 2019-20 season.
After four years of dedicated service to the Miners’ organization, Derek Sweet-Coulter has decided to pursue another opportunity in the hockey world.
We wish Derek continued success as he transitions from the Miners’ program to his next venture.
The application deadline is Friday May 24.
All those interested in filling this role can e-mail their resume and references to team president Jason Vinet at rightside27@hotmail.com
Sweet-Coulter leaves the Miners after a very successful season as the SIJHL named him its Coach of the Year Award recipient for the 2018-19 regular season.
He earned the honour over fellow finalists Wilson Housley (Thief River Falls Norskies) and Rob DeGagne (Thunder Bay North Stars) in voting completed by each of the SIJHL’s six clubs.
As both head coach and general manager, Sweet-Coulter led the Miners to a franchise-record 38 wins during the campaign while finishing with an overall record of 38-15-3-0 and into the Bill Salonen Cup Final, where the Miners were ousted in five games by the Thunder Bay North Stars.
