The Hunt for a New Bench Boss Begins
The hunt for the 21st head coach of the Kingston Frontenacs won’t take long.
Both Doug Gilmour, president of hockey operations, and general manager Darren Keily indicated the replacement for the departed Jay Varady could be announced by next week.
Kurtis Foster, an assistant coach this past Ontario Hockey League season, is believed to be the frontrunner.
A year ago after Paul McFarland had moved on to a National Hockey League job as an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers, Gilmour hinted that Foster, who had just been hired on June 5, 2017, to be an assistant coach, could soon become an OHL head coach.
Asked Tuesday morning if that time is now for Foster, Gilmour skirted around that, responding via text message that “we have meetings this week and decide next week.”
Keily left it a little more open-ended.
“It could be two days from now, it could be two weeks from now. We’ve got a lot of good candidates,” Keily said.
