McIlrath leaves post as Thunder coach

When the Alpena Thunder take the ice again this season, it will have a new coach behind the bench.

Todd McIlrath has left his position as head coach of the Thunder to make another attempt at playing professional hockey.

Thunder general manager Joseph Kolodziej said that the team's new coach will be announced Monday.

"I think that Todd's departure was a timely departure for him and for the team. I'm looking forward to working with our new coach and moving forward with our season," Kolodziej said Friday.
