Senior A Timbermen considering coaches

The Nanaimo Timbermen will go into next month’s Western Lacrosse Association draft without a coach in place.

The senior A Coastal Windows Timbermen were close to naming a new head coach, but general manager Earl Nicholson said those plans fell through over the holidays and the team is now investigating a plan B. He said he's confident that there are still some good candidates out there.

“We definitely want somebody in place at least a month before we go to camp, just to make sure that we’ve got all the pieces in place that the coach is going to want in terms of the roster,” he said.

He said it's not any concern to go into the draft without a head coach; rarely, said Nicholson, has the coach been at the Timbermen war table on draft day over the years.

The WLA draft will be Feb. 4 in Langley. Nanaimo’s first pick is in the third round.
