Reign have an assistant coach.

If you attended the Reign’s most recent home game Wednesday against Bakersfield, you have already witnessed the debut of new volunteer assistant coach Greg Poss.

Poss has been working with the team in practices all week. His coaching resume is impressive, recently including three seasons at the helm of Mannheim in the DEL, the top league in Germany, where he guided the Eagles to a championship in 2007. 

A native of Green Bay, Wisc., Poss has spent his entire professional coaching career in Europe. Prior to joining Mannheim, Poss was the head coach of the Nuremburg Ice Tigers for two years (2003-05) and the Iserlohn Roosters for six years (1997-2003). His international experience includes two seasons (2004-05) as head coach of the German national team, where he coached NHLers Marco Sturm, Olaf Kolzig, Christian Ehrhoff, Marcel Goc and Jochen Hecht.

He’s also served as an assistant coach for Team USA in the Deutschland Cup, a tournament pitting the best European-based players against each other according to their native country. In the most recent tournament, he assisted head coach Peter Laviolette (now head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers) on the silver medal-winning Team USA in November.
