New Simley Boys Hockey Coach

To: Simley and IGH Hockey players and parents

From: Will Short

  Before I announce the new head boys hockey coach at Simley High School, I would like to thank the committee members that helped me make this selection. Scott Bell, a Simley alumni, Gopher hockey player and NHL scout.
Steve Illetschko, a Simley alumni and parent of three sons that played hockey at Simley. Mickey Difronzo, a Simley alumni and president of the IGH Hockey Association.
 All of these men took time away from work to be a part of the process. Thank you again. For two days we interviewed five very qualified candidates. At the conclusion of all the interviews, I had each member of the committee rank the candidates 1-5. Every member had the same #1 ranking. After lengthy discussion about each candidate we were very united in our decision.

  Austyn Kryzer will be the new Head Coach of the Simley Boys Hockey team. The committee was blown away by Austyn in the interview process, no other candidate had the same vision or passion for Simley hockey. Austyn is a community member and has children in our IGH program. I am extremely excited to see what Austyn can do with the Simley program. Coach Kryzer and I will be meeting to plan the upcoming season and he will be making some meeting announcements very soon. Thank you to everyone who continues to support Simley Hockey.

  If you have questions or concerns about the process, please feel free to call me or any member on the committee. I will be out of the office this afternoon attending the Athena Award ceremony. I will be in my office on Thursday and Friday.
