Philadelphia Wings assistant coach Chris Flynn today announced his retirement due to work commitments and personal reasons. Flynn has served as the defensive coordinator since joining the Wings coaching staff in September 2001. He is also a 10-year veteran of the Wings (1990-00), including four Championship seasons (1990, '94, '95, '98). Flynn accumulated 154 points (66 goals and 88 assists) in 94 career games.
"The enthusiasm and fire that Chris brought to the field as a player were the qualities that made him a good coach," said Wings' General Manager Marty O'Neill. "We wish him the best of luck in all of his endeavors and feel fortunate that he will remain involved in the organization as an alumni."
Flynn maintains a full-time position as a broker with Binswanger, a commercial real-estate firm, located in Philadelphia, PA. He and his wife, Katie, reside with their two children in West Chester, PA.
