Jim Bottomley is the new head coach and general manager of the Yarmouth Mariners.
The Maritime Junior Hockey League team made the announcement on Monday. The Mariners lost the best-of-three mini-series to Valley Wildcats this season.
“We’re going to reload and provide the fans with an atmosphere and a team that is going to be competitive and give us an opportunity to win every night,” Bottomley told TC Media.
Bottomley has a long history in the league, including winning a national championship with Halifax in 2002 and most recently coaching the Amherst Ramblers for the past three seasons.
Former Mariners player and captain Jordan Scott has been named an assistant coach. He will join Timothy Garden-Cole and John Murphy on the bench.
