The 2021-22 season was Vincent’s first in Columbus but before then he spent 10 seasons in the Jets organization. From 2011-12 to 2015-16 he served as an assistant coach for the Jets and from 2016-17 to 2020-21 he was the bench boss for the Manitoba Moose, the Jets’ AHL affiliate, recording a record of 155-139-31, and winning the AHL’s Coach of the Year award in 2017-18.
The Jets decided not to retain interim head coach Dave Lowry, who took over mid-season after Paul Maurice stepped down.
