VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – The Vancouver Giants have their fired head coach.

NEWS 1130 Sports was the first to report the WHL team has parted ways with Lorne Molleken.

In a brief online statement, Giants majority owner Ron Toigo said, “We would like to thank Lorne for his time with our club.”

Molleken took over behind the bench for the G-Men at the start of the 2015/16 season. Under his watch, Vancouver went 23-38-5-4. Assistant Coach Tyler Kuntz has been named the club’s Interim Head Coach.
