Pensacola coach nears record 480 wins

Pensacola Ice Pilots Coach John Marks could tie the ECHL record for most regular season wins on Friday if the Ice Pilots win against the Gwinnett Gladiators at home tonight. Marks, who coached two ECHL teams to the Kelly Cup, is best known in the Midwest for playing with the Chicago Blackhawks for ten seasons and for his years in the International Hockey League coaching Kalamazoo and Indianapolis.

The current record of 480 wins in 13 seasons is held by John Brophy who coached Hampton Roads and Wheeling, ending in 2003. Marks already holds the record of 970 games coached in the ECHL.

The Ice Pilots are affiliated with the Rockford IceHogs and the Chicago Blackhawks.
