Harry Mahood Resigns as Assistant Coach
EVERETT, Wash. - The Everett Silvertips of the Western Hockey League and general manager Garry Davidson announced today that Harry Mahood has resigned from his position as assistant coach.
"We recognize Harry Mahood's contributions and thank him for his tremendous work with our players and our program over the last year," said Davidson. "We acknowledge his desire to dedicate more time to family, and forever recognize him as a part of our Silvertips family as well."
Mahood, originally named to his post on Jul. 11, 2018, helped guide the Silvertips to their third straight U.S. Division title last season and a 47-16-2-3 record (99 points), second in the Western Conference while reaching the second round of the postseason for the fifth consecutive year.
"Harry Mahood helped elevate our program over the last year, serving with dignity, character, and professionalism," said Silvertips head coach Dennis Williams. "I'm proud to not just call him a fellow colleague, but also a friend. He made a tremendous impact with our players and I express an extreme amount of gratitude for his contributions. We all wish him and wife, Sarah, very well in the next chapter of life."
"I thank Consolidated Sports Holdings, Zoran Rajcic, Garry Davidson, Dennis Williams, Louis Mass, James Stucky, Blake Draughon, Mike Benton, the players, Silvertips fans and the entire Tips staff for an incredible experience on and off the ice," said Mahood. "Returning this season became difficult after moving to New York for an opportunity of a lifetime, for my wife Sarah within the airline industry and this allows for continued work in hockey with development consulting and player representation."
