Flint Firebirds get new general manager
The Flint Firebirds began a new era today as they said goodbye to general manager George Burnett.
Burnett has held the position for a year but now he's leaving to become the head coach and general manager for the Guelph Storm.
In his place the Firebirds introduced Barclay Branch this afternoon and he says he's ready to get started.
"This announcement has come together rather quickly. And, it's been an overwhelming couple of days but a very exciting couple of days. And, I couldn't be happier and more excited to be a Flint Firebird,” said Barclay.
The Firebirds made their first ever playoff appearance last season and they will look to build on that under Branch's guidance.
