Vipers make coaching change

Jason McKee is the new head coach of the Vernon Vipers. 

McKee takes over from Mark Ferner, who has been given another position in the organization. 

McKee coached two seasons with the WHL's Vancouver Giants before being fired last June. 

Ferner helped lead the Vipers to a 26-21-8-3 record this season before advancing the BC Hockey League final where they were eliminated by the Prince George Spruce Kings.
