Comox Valley Glacier Kings hire new coach

Jeff Dubois has been hired as the new head coach and GM of the Comox Valley Glacier Kings. Jordan Kamprath had coached the team last season, and 12 games into this season.

Dubois spent the past two seasons as assistant coach and assistant GM with the BCHL’s Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

From 2014-2017, he coached the KIJHL’s Creston Valley Thunder Cats. In his final season, he led the team to a bronze medal at the Cyclone Taylor Cup, and was named the KIJHL’s Coach of the Year.

Dubois also won two league championships in the BCIHL as head coach at Selkirk College in 2012/13 and 2013/14. He was named BCIHL Coach of the Year both seasons.

“I’m excited to join the Glacier Kings, and thankful to Dave and Marsha Webb, and Iris Churchill for the opportunity to lead their team,” Dubois said on a post on the VIJHL website. “I’ve been able to watch the VIJHL closely from my time in Alberni Valley and I know it’s a very competitive league with a great reputation for player advancement. I’m looking forward to getting to know our players and staff, and working with them to put a winning product on the ice for our fans.”

“We’d like to thank Jordan for all the time and effort he put into the Glacier Kings organization over his many years as a player and coach,” the Webbs and Churchill said. “Ultimately we decided that a coaching change was in the best interests of the team.”

Dubois will assume his responsibilities immediately and make his debut behind the bench Thursday when the Glacier Kings visit the Nanaimo Buccaneers.

The Kings are at the bottom of the VIJHL North division with one point.
