Cole was the head coach of the Southern Oregon Spartans of the Western States Hockey League who were 33-15-4 this past season. His 3 record with that franchise was 100-44-6. Cole started his coaching career in Canada in 1984 and prior to taking the Southern Oregon job, he was a consultant for the Hockey Group Agency.
