Jay Varady Gets The Call to Coach in the AHL with the Tucson Roadrunners

Kingston – The Kingston Frontenacs are announcing the departure of Head Coach Jay Varady from the Ontario Hockey League club today to accept the Head Coaching position with the AHL’s Tucson Roadrunners, the farm club for the Arizona Coyotes.

“This was unexpected, but speaks to the caliber of coach in Jay,” said Darren Keily, General Manager of the Kingston Frontenacs. “We wish him all the best in the AHL and thank him for his work behind the bench this season with our team.” 

Varady, who joined the team for the 2017-18 season, leaves the club after just a single season, one that saw the franchise finish third in the Eastern Conference (36 wins, 26 regulation losses, 6 overtime losses and 3 shootout losses) and go on to achieve its best post-season results, reaching the OHL Eastern Conference Finals. 

Kingston Frontenacs General Manager Darren Keily is working quickly to fill the void left by Varady. 

The Kingston Frontenacs open 2018-19 Training Camp at the end of August, and begin the 2018-19 season in Peterborough on Thursday, September 20 before their Home Opener presented by Scotiabank on Friday, September 21, 2018 at Leon’s Centre.
