Macon Mayhem hire first head coach

The Macon Mayhem introduced Kevin Kerr as their first head coach Wednesday.

The minor league hockey team begins play this fall.

Kevin Kerr, who in 2005 became the all-time leader for minor league professional goals, retired with 677 goals scored in a career that spanned from 1987 to 2005.

“Career-wise, this felt like the right time for this,” Kerr said. “When I reached out (to Mayhem president Mark Richards) we talked about how the Thrashers left Atlanta. Macon can grab this team as its own.”
