The Rochester Americans announced today that Chadd Cassidy has been named Interim Head Coach of the Amerks while Chris Taylor has been named Assistant Coach.

Cassidy becomes the 30th head coach in Amerks history after originally joining the team as an assistant coach on August 31, 2011 and is currently in his second season with the club. The 2011-12 season marked Cassidy’s first in professional hockey after spending the previous five seasons (2006-2011) working alongside current Buffalo Sabres Interim Head Coach Ron Rolston in the same capacity with the U.S. National Under-18 Team. In 2011-12, Cassidy helped guide the Amerks to a 36-26-10-4 record and a berth in the Calder Cup Playoffs.
