Leo Thomas tabbed as new Mayhem Head Coach

Recommended Posts


MACON, GA - The Macon Mayhem have named Leo Thomas as the team’s new Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations, the team announced at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon.

“I would like to thank team owners Bob and Diane Kerzner for this great opportunity,” said Thomas. “Macon is a special place for me, as the city has welcomed me with open arms the past two years, and it’s been fun to see the growth of hockey during me time here. We’ve had tremendous success over the past few years, and I can’t wait to get to work and build on the success we’ve had here in Macon.”

The promotion of Thomas is a historical moment for the Mayhem and the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL), as he becomes the first African-American head coach in SPHL history. Thomas is also the only current African-American head coach in North American professional hockey at the moment.
