Rick Comley Jr. has been named the new assistant general manager and director of scouting for the Omaha Lancers, the team announced Tuesday.
A graduate of Michigan State University, Comley comes to Omaha following a three year stretch in the USHL league office, where he helped launch the USHL player development initiative and oversaw the USHL prospect combines while serving as the league's top scout.
“Rick brings a wealth of USHL experience to our program and we're thrilled to have him join the Lancers family,” said Lancers head coach and General Manager Brian Kaufman. “With his bloodlines, his knowledge of this league and his long track record of success, bringing Rick aboard was a home run for us.”
Comley is the son of college hockey coaching legend Rick Comley Sr., who won NCAA titles at Northern Michigan and Michigan State.
