It was very interesting to see Kelly McCrimmon step down in Brandon today and had the Head Coaching duties over to Cory Clouston McCrimmon who is also G.M. and owner of the team brings in a guy who despite being only 41 years old has a wack of experience at the junior and pro level. The official release can be found here.
So why was now the right time for McCrimmon? I've been told that the 2nd winningest coach in team history has reviewed his situation each season. We'll find out if that's true this Saturday when he joins us on The Pipeline Line at 10:25 am mst. You can hear the interview on the TEAM 1260 in Edmonton or online here. It's good to see that assistant coach Dwayne Gylywoychuk is staying with the club and that Darren Ritchie will become a full time assistant coach. Both guys bring tremendous assets to the team.
