Giants and Noel Part Ways
The Vancouver Giants announced on Wednesday that the club has mutually parted ways with Head Coach Claude Noel. The search for a new bench boss will begin immediately.
“We’d like to thank Claude for his time with our club,” said Giants majority owner Ron Toigo. “Claude would like to pursue pro opportunities, and we need to move forward. We really appreciate him stepping into this role mid-season; we’re ending our time together on really good terms, and we wish him all the best in the future.”
Noel, a Kirkland Lake, Ontario native, took over behind the Giants’ bench on November 30, 2014. Under his watch, the G-Men posted a record of 17-23-2-2. Prior to his time with the Giants, Noel coached the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets from 2011-2014.
