Steelers head coach Tom Barrasso was introduced to the waiting media this morning in the Heart Lounge of the Fly DSA (Sheffield) Arena.
Accompanied by club owner Tony Smith, Barrasso faced questions from BBC Look North, Calendar News, The STAR, Yorkshire Post and BBC Radio Sheffield.
Owner Tony Smith welcomed Tom to the club saying: “We are delighted that Tom is here with us and we can now get back to concentrating on the hockey
“We looked at many options over the past week and decided we needed an experienced head coach, we believed that this wasn’t a job for a first time head coach. Tom ticked all the boxes and once the negotiations were completed I was delighted that he has been able to arrive here so quickly and get started”
Tom Barrasso echoed those words saying: “My agent confirmed that the Steelers was a great organisation and that this was excellent opportunity for me in terms of coaching. I’ve enjoyed my time in Italy and had a great relationship with the club there”
As for the team, the new boss said: “I’m not making any changes, we start with a clean sheet. Every long journey starts with one small step and we take that first step on Saturday”
