KOMOKA, ONT. — The Komoka Kings have announced that Adam Casey will be their new head coach.


Kings President and GM Roop Chanderdat made the announcement on Thursday that the
25-year coaching veteran will take the reins effective immediately. Casey served as the
Kings’ assistant coach last season and Chanderdat says that he is already familiar with both
the new and returning players within the organization.


Casey is also well-known within the league, having previously served as the head coach and
assistant general manager of the London Nationals as well as an assistant coach with the St.
Mary’s Lincolns.


“Adam brings a wealth of knowledge to the position having served in different capacities,”
Chanderdat said. “We are excited to have a coach of his calibre and experience to guide our
team to the next level in our league.”


Casey, who is a building technology professor with Fanshawe College, lives in London with
his wife Branka and three kids Emily, Caitlin, and Daniel. He says his family is also excited to
support him in his new role with the Kings.


“This opportunity as head coach of the Kings is extremely exciting,” Casey said. “We have a
great mix of veteran players and young talented additions. The atmosphere and character in
this dressing room has been great so far.”


Casey will be rejoined by assistant coach Mike Reati as well as goalie coach Dave McDonald.
The team expects to name an additional assistant before the start of the season.
