The Tri-City Americans announced on Friday that they won’t offer a contract extension to head coach Jim Hiller.
Hiller coached the team for five seasons and is second on the Americans’ all-time list for coaching wins (210) and first in points percentage (.619). He is also the franchise’s career leader in playoff victories (29).
But Tri-City finished eighth in the Western Conference this season at 27-37-3-5 and lost to the Kelowna Rockets in the first round of the playoffs.
