Toledo Walleye Coach
Nick Vitucci has resigned as head coach
effective immediately, but will stay with the team in some capacity.
Assistant coach Dan Watson will take over for Vitucci while
the team searches for a permanent replacement. It is unclear what role Vitucci
will move into with the team.
"I have enjoyed my time coaching the Walleye," Vitucci said
in a statement Tuesday. "It has been extremely fulfilling to start a new team
and to mentor young hockey players who have a passion for the game, but I feel
that it's time for some new leadership and a new approach. This will always be
a highlight in my career."
"Nick has been a valuable team builder, mentor and
colleague," Walleye General Manager Joe Napoli said. "I have been honored to work with him as head coach in
developing the Toledo Walleye. But he's ready to try other options and I – we –
support him in his decision. Nick's decision to make this move now, gives us
the appropriate window to find a coaching replacement in time for recruiting
and preparing for next season. I am happy to say that he will remain with the
Walleye organization. His future role, which is yet to be finalized, will
capitalize on his nearly 25 years of professional hockey experience."
Vitucci was head coach of the Toledo Storm for three
seasons before the team suspended operations in 2007. He has coached the
Walleye since the team's inception in 2009.
The Walleye are 16-31-3 so far this season and likely to
miss the playoffs.
