The Victoria Royals say they will unveil a new head coach and general manager soon.
The Western Hockey League team announced on Friday that Marc Habscheid will vacate those positions to take on a new executive role with GSH Holdings, the Royals’ parent corporation.
A former Memorial Cup winning coach with the Kelowna Rockets, Habscheid led the Royals to a 24-41-3-4 record in their first season in the B.C., capital. They were swept by the Kamloops Blazers in the first round of playoffs.
The Royals said a replacement will be announced in the coming weeks.
