Costello named Americans head coach

The Allen Americans have named Chad Costello as the team's new head coach. Costello begins his coaching career after concluding a 14-year playing career.

Costello is the only player in ECHL history to win multiple Most Valuable Player Awards, earning the honor with Colorado in 2011-12 and with Allen in 2015-16 and 2016-17. He received the Playoffs MVP award in 2016, and is the only player in league history to receive both the regular season and playoff MVP during his career.

In 375 career ECHL games with Texas, Ontario, Colorado and Allen, Costello totaled 561 points (172g-389a). He ranks sixth in ECHL history for career assists and is 16th in career points. He is one of just three players in league history to record three consecutive seasons of 100 or more points (2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17).
