"It was a difficult decision to make as Kevin helped build our organization when the Lumberjacks first became a part of the USHL," Lumberjacks owner Josh Mervis said. "The team was not having the results we needed and it was time to move in a new direction."
Mervis will assume the duties of general manager.
The Jacks have also hired Ron Mason as a senior advisor for the team. Interesting note is that it doesn't appear that Jim McKenzie has any prior head coaching experience, or coaching experience at all.
