McCrimmon out in Detroit

Per TSN’s Darren Dreger, the Red Wings won’t be renewing the contract of assistant coach Brad McCrimmon:

In an hour or so, the Detroit Red Wings will announce veteran asst coach Brad McCrimmon won’t be back for a 4th year on the Wings bench.

McCrimmon is a very good coach. Contract was up. He should be among the candidates for 1 of 5 head coaching jobs.

Coach McCrimmon was hired after Todd McLellan departed to take the Head Coach position in San Jose. So, here’s another thing to keep an eye on this summer. One would think that the Wings will be on the hunt for an experienced coach that WON’T RUN THE PENALTY KILL INTO THE GROUND.
