FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

The Ontario Hockey League (OHL) has appointed a new Head Coach and Associate Coach to the Flint Firebirds.

Ryan Oulahen has been named as Head Coach while Eric Wellwood has been given the position of Associate Coach.

“Today’s announcement is a further piece in putting together a strong hockey operations staff for the Flint Firebirds,” said David Branch OHL Commissioner. “Their combined knowledge and experience will help develop the Flint Firebird players both on and off the ice.”

Oulahen, 31, is a native of Newmarket, Ontario and spent the last six years as the Lead Assistant Coach of the Brampton/North Bay Battalion.

He also played for the Grand Rapids Griffins for four seasons.

Wellwood, 26, is a native of Windsor, Ontario and has been the Assistant Coach of the Oshawa Generals for the last two seasons.

Earlier this week George Burnett was named as the team’s new General Manager.

The OHL is running the hockey operations for the Firebirds following issues with the team’s owner.
