Sources tell TPS that former Alberta Golden Bear defenceman Ian Herbers could be the team's next head coach. This would be an interesting move on Herbers part who became the head coach in Milwaukee this year when Kirk Muller was hired by the Carolina Hurricanes as head coach.
Would he leave a pro head coaching job to take on in the CIS? Even if it is one of the most coveted jobs in university hockey and provides the new coach with more time to spend on hockey with the creation of a General Manager position.
It would be a great hire by the school, as Herbers was an excellent player with the Bears and has won pretty much everywhere he's played. He won a Memorial Cup in Swift Current, a National Championship with the Bears and a Calder Cup with the Cape Breton Oilers.
An announcement is expected shortly on who the new bench boss will be.
