Trent Yawney is leaving the Norfolk Admirals head coaching position to take a job as an assistant with the parent club in Anaheim.
Yawney put in two stints with the Admirals. He was here for five seasons when the team was affiliated with the Blackhawks. It was the team's first years in the AHL.
Yawney then moved on to coach the Blackhawks in the NHL.
His most recent appearance in Norfolk was over the last 2 seasons when the team was affiliated with the Anaheim Ducks. This past season might have been his best as he overcome numerous callups of his best players and still got the Admirals into the playoffs where they won their opening round series.
