Kelly Clymer has been appointed the new TAHA Coach-in-Chief effective immediately. Kelly is a familiar face in the Dallas hockey scene and has been one of the most successful coaches in the region with a reputation for developing his players both on and off the ice.
Kelly replaces Jouni Lehtola who held this role since 2006. Jouni brought a distinctive style to the development of Texas/Oklahoma coaches and his passion and love of the game helped launch the careers of dozens of bench bosses. Jouni steps away from the CIC role to allow him time to pursue a new opportunity with the Dallas Stars' Xtreme Team; working with Dwight Mullins to develop the next generation of players.
We thank Jouni for his years of service to TAHA and wish him well in his new endeavor.
