Robinson leaves Vipers' den.
Dave Robinson has left the B.C. Hockey League Vernon Vipers' coaching staff after two years as an assistant.
Robinson, 24, is a Vernon minor hockey product and former Viper captain.
"It is time for me to explore new options moving forward in my life," said Robinson. "I would like to thank Duncan Wray, Jason Williamson and Kris Mallette, and the entire Vipers organization for the opportunity they have given me. I would also like to thank the fans of Vernon for all their support the last two years."
The Vipers will go with Williamson and Mallette as associate coaches, and not hire a third coach for next season.
"Dave was a Viper through and through," said Williamson. "He's got to explore other options and now's the time to do it. He brought passion as an assistant coach and I understand why he's leaving. I didn't want to see him go."
