Tri-City hires Williamson as new coach

The Western Hockey League’s Tri-City Americans have hired Mike Williamson as their new head coach.

The former Calgary Hitmen and Portland Winterhawks bench boss replaced Jim Hiller on Tuesday to become the 14th head coach in Tri-City franchise history. Hiller’s contract was not renewed after the Americans finished in eighth place in the Western Conference with a 29-33-4-6 record before being eliminated in five games by the Kelowna Rockets in a best-of-seven first-round playoff series.

Williamson has coached in 888 career regular-season WHL games, posting an overall record of 427-374-67-20, as well as a 54-51 mark in 105 playoff games. Williamson’s contract was not renewed by the Hitmen this season after posting a 48-17-3-4 regular-season record before being ousted in six games by the Kootenay Ice in Round 1 of the playoffs.
