Too Far Into the Forrest – J.D. Forrest named WBS Head Coach
September 11, 2020Posted by on
It’s all about the pun in the head line because the tweet came down from Pittsburgh Friday which made it official:
Link there in on the meatier details, such as that WBS assistant Jarrod Skalde was not retained and Jason Karmanos named General Manager of Wilkes-Barre. Mike Vellucci had served as both head coach and GM during his tenure on Coal Street last season.
It’s a safe hire. If you go looking for more quotes on the decision you will see tweets like these:
I don’t have a problem with the hire. Promote from within. Forrest served under and learned from some damn fine coaches in Wilkes-Barre.
One other note, from the release, “The Penguins will not make any additional decisions regarding the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton coaching staff until closer to the start of the AHL season.”
Wear a damn mask and wash your damn hands so we can have some semblance of an AHL season this year. Thanks.
