Yarmouth Mariners Name Jim Bottomley Head Coach

At the conclusion of this past season the Yarmouth Mariners ownership opted to let go of head coach Laurie Barron.  Days later Jim Bottomley also found himself unemployed as the Amherst Ramblers management decided to terminate Bottomley’s contract.

What’s new is sometimes very familiar.

The Yarmouth Mariners have announced that Jim Bottomley is the new head coach and general manager of the team. It was only two seasons ago that Bottomley’s team knocked Yarmouth out of the playoffs in the first round.

Bottomley has a long history of junior A coaching. He’s had 10 junior A championships with his respective teams. He’s a winner of the Fred Page Cup. He’s been to five RBC national junior A championships, winning one and placing second in another. He’s been a coach for Team Atlantic, a Canada Games team and an assistant with the Halifax Mooseheads.

The Mariners also announced that former Mariners player and captain Jordan Scott has been named an assistant coach. Timothy Garden-Cole and John Murphy are also staying on the bench.

Although new to the bench, the Mariners team is not completely new to Bottomley. His  first experience with the Mariners came as a parent, when his son Jarret played with the organization from 2003 to 2005.
