(Windsor, ON) – Director of Analytics Evan Mathias will remain with our coaching staff, thanks to a new two-year deal with general manager Warren Rychel.
The 23-year-old Windsor native spent the last two seasons working under former head coach Rocky Thompson.
Mathias rounds out a staff that now features head coach Trevor Letowski, assistant coach Jerrod Smith and skills coach Tyler Roeszler.
“I’m very excited to stay here in Windsor and be part of a world class organization,” Mathias said. “For me, growing up in Windsor and now being able to continue my work with the Spitfires is a great opportunity. We’ve built a great working environment and I look forward to getting back to it next month with Trevor, Jerrod and Tyler.”
Mathias will also take over duties as video coach from Sean DeMuynck, who has left the team after four seasons.
“We thank Sean for all his hard work over the last few years,” said Rychel. “It’s not easy balancing road trips, a career and all that comes with both.”
Rychel says Mathias fits well with the new-look coaching staff.
“Evan works hard and his attention to detail is outstanding,” Rychel said. “We’re happy to have him back among a talented group that’s accountable to each other and enjoys working together.”
