Admirals announce new head coach

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) — The Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Friday that Karl Taylor has been hired as head coach of the Milwaukee Admirals.

Taylor, a 47-year-old native of North Bay, Ont., comes to Milwaukee after spending four seasons with the AHL’s Texas Stars as an assistant coach. He is the 21st Head Coach in Admirals history, replacing Dean Evason who took an assistant coaching position with the Minnesota Wild.

Taylor is currently in Nashville for the conclusion of the Predators development camp.

“Karl comes highly recommended to us with a diverse skillset to coach and develop players, and we are happy to promote him to a position where he will take care of our top prospects,” Poile said. “We always say the road to Nashville runs through Milwaukee, and are confident that Karl will continue that legacy.”

Taylor and the Admirals will play their home opener on Saturday, October 13 at 6 p.m. at Panther Arena.
