French acted as head coach of the Calgary Hitmen in the North American Western Hockey League (WHL) in the past three years. However, he also has experience at the pro level, as he led the Hershey Bears (AHL) for several seasons as well as KHL's Medvescak Zagreb during 2013-14.

The 46-year-old Canadian will thus take over behind the Dragons' bench from Larry Huras, whose contract had not been extended by the club.
