The Wheeling Nailers have officially announced their new head coach.

At a press conference Wednesday morning, officials with the organization named Mark Dennehy as the new head coach and Director of Hockey Operations.

Dennehy has coached at Merrimack College in Massachusetts since 2005.

In his last four seasons at Merrimack, his teams have made it to the post season.

Current Assistant General Manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Bill Guerin, talked about the large number of applicants for the position. He said when they came across Dennehy, it was a no brainer.

“I coach for two reasons,” said Dennehy. “One, because I love it, and two, because my wife lets me.”
