Spitfires re-sign Smith, add Roeszler as Skills Coach
(Windsor, ON) – General Manager Warren Rychel bolstered his coaching staff today with a pair of signings.
Assistant Coach Jerrod Smith has inked a new two-year deal. Smith, 33, will enter his seventh season with the Club and fifth behind the bench.
The Burlington, Ontario native says the chance to work under new head coach Trevor Letowski was too good to pass up.
“I’m excited to stay in Windsor and to continue to be part of a great organization,” Smith said. “Anytime you get to work with a guy like Trevor Letowski, it’s something I couldn’t turn down. I’m looking forward to working with him, (Player Development and Skills Coach) Tyler (Roeszler) and (Director of Analytics) Evan (Mathias). It’s a comfortable working environment. We’re looking to have fun and to develop our young core of players.”
ROESZLER ADDED AS SKILLS COACH
Tyler Roeszler has been hired as Player Development and Skills Coach.
The 28-year-old Chatham native was a 15th round pick of the Spitfires back in 2004. He played for the hometown Maroons from 2005 to 2007 before spending four years at Cornell University.
Roeszler spent three years as a coach with the Maroons before parts of two seasons behind the bench with the University of Guelph.
