–The Spokane Chiefs have signed head coach Don Nachbaur of Prince George to a two-year contract extension(through the 2016-17 season). Nachbaur will enter his 5th season with the Chiefs – and 16th in the WHL – with the upcoming 2014-15 season. Currently with 598 career coaching victories, he could become just the fourth WHL head coach to eclipse the 600-win mark, joining Ken Hodge (742), Lorne Molleken (603), and Don Hay (609). Hay, now with
the Kamloops Blazers, is the only active WHL coach ahead of Nachbaur in career wins. Nachbaur is a three-time winner of the WHL’s Coach of the Year award, most recently winning with Spokane following the 2010-11 season.
