Gord Dineen will not return as Marlies head coach
« on: May 19, 2015, 02:39:56 PM »


From the Marlies:

Quote
Toronto Maple Leafs’ Assistant General Manager Kyle Dubas announced changes to the Toronto Marlies coaching staff on Tuesday as Gord Dineen will not return as head coach. Dineen however has been offered a position to remain on as an associate coach while the Club announced it will begin its search for a new head coach immediately. Associate coach Derek King was relieved of his duties while assistant coach Ben Simon has been offered another position within the organization.

Named head coach on July 15, 2014, Dineen had also served as the Marlies’ assistant coach in their five previous seasons. In 2014-15, the Marlies secured the seventh seed with 87 points and a 39-28-9 regular season record but were eliminated from the Calder Cup playoffs in the first round, losing the best-of-five series against the Grand Rapids Griffins (AHL affiliate of the Detroit Red Wings) three games to two.

No real surprise. Expect the team to hire Keefe to fill that position.

All the rumours say they're looking at a brilliant, young hockey mind from the Soo. 

Just to quell speculation a bit, so far no one has contacted me.

Just to be clear, when I say Keefe, I mean my buddy Keefe who lives down the street.
