The Nanaimo Clippers have announced they’ve inked a long-term deal with head coach Darren Naylor. Darren has been the Head Coach of the Nanaimo Clippers since taking over the position in December 2017 shortly after a change in ownership. Wes Mussio, owner of the Nanaimo Clippers, remarked, “I’m very pleased with the performance of Darren. He and I have the same thought processes when it comes to icing  the best possible team. I wanted to ensure that Darren was locked down for a few more seasons to ensure we have continuity in the team. The guy’s work ethic is off the chart, his ability to recruit is stellar and he manages the bench very well. ”

Darren Naylor commented, “I’m happy to commit to a long-term relationship with the Nanaimo Clippers and Wes Mussio, the owner. I see a lot of good things coming down the pipe when it comes to the team. Wes and I are building a strong program with some excellent recruits and I want to be part of what should be a very good organization for many years to come. I’ve enjoyed living in Nanaimo over the last year and half and am happy to call Nanaimo my home.”

Naylor alongside his coaching staff get things started on August 19th for the beginning of Main Camp.
