FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) – The Komets have announced that Gary Graham will not be returning as their head coach for the 2019-20 season.

“Gary did a great job during his 10 seasons with the Komets,” club president Michael Franke said.  “We will honor the final year of Gary’s contract. This will give him the opportunity to land a new position in the hockey world while still under contract.”

“It’s a fresh start for Gary to further his career and provides the Komets a new voice behind the bench,” added Komets Vice President and General Manager David Franke. “We wish nothing but the best for Gary and his family and thank him for his service.

Graham echoed the sentiment in thanking the Komets, praising their organization, and wishing them well moving forward.
