Berry’s Back

March 31, 2016

After about a month of searching the Dauphin Kings have come to the conclusion that former Assistant Coach Marc Berry is the best fit for the MJHL club moving forward, and I couldn’t agree more.

Berry has been with the Kings as long as I have and knows the team from the inside and out. Although the transition last year was a bit difficult as the club battled down the stretch, I believe with a chance to have a full season under his belt Berry will do just fine. Four months from this past season was not a long enough opportunity for Berry to show what he can do for the Kings organization, especially when most of those months were after the trade deadline.

Below is an interview with Berry. Also, be ready for a Spring Camp Preview as Dauphin begins to move forward towards the 2016-17 campaign, their 49th season.

Below is the release from the Dauphin Kings…

Dauphin, MB – After a great deal of interest and an intensive selection and interview process, the Dauphin Kings Junior A Hockey Club has signed a new Head Coach and General Manager. Dauphin Kings fans will see Marc Berry behind the bench as they take to the ice this fall.

Berry is no stranger to the hockey club, having been the Assistant Coach and Marketing Director for the past 6 seasons, and interim Head Coach and GM since December. He has now signed a 3-year contract that will see him lead the team through to the 2018-19 season.

“The Selection Committee had a tough task ahead of them in choosing a new leader for this team”, stated Kings President and Governor, Randy Daley. “We had many strong, qualified candidates but Marc put forward an impressive application and blew us away with his preparedness, as well as with his contacts, plans, and passion for the Kings. It was a unanimous decision and we are confident that Marc can lead and develop this team.”

For Berry, it is a dream come true. “I’m excited. Getting the opportunity to be a Head Coach in the MJHL has been a goal of mine. Being named Head Coach and GM of the Dauphin Kings, a team with such a rich history, is an incredible honour. There will be some great challenges ahead and I can’t wait to get started.”

“I want to thank the Dauphin Kings Board of Directors for giving me this opportunity. I also want to thank Marlin Murray for giving me a chance six years ago, and all of the support I’ve received from the community since I took over in December. Lastly I want to thank my wife Michelle and our boys, Joe and Josh, for all of their support, understanding and patience.

The Kings are also in the process of hiring a full-time Marketing Director, and hope to make an announcement regarding that in the coming weeks.
