MIKE BABCOCK REPORTEDLY LANDS NEW JOB

According to former NHLer Nick Kypreos, former Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock is joining the University of Vermont Men’s Hockey Team, although not in a coaching role.

If Kypreos is correct, the new role will be as a volunteer advisor to the coaching staff. The reason the position is labelled as volunteer is because he is still being paid by the Maple Leafs, meaning he can not be paid until his signed contract is up. Babcock, of course, had a mighty fall from grace this past season. While highly regarded as one of the best coaches in the game, many came out with accusations on him shortly after being fired from the team in November. He was in his fifth season with the team at the time of the firing.



Prior to coaching the Leafs, Babcock had also been a head coach for the Detroit Red Wings and the Anaheim Ducks. He helped lead the Red Wings to a Stanley Cup in 2008, and was also the head coach of Team Canada at the Winter Olympics when they won gold in both 2010 and 2014. His experience could certainly be used by Vermont, who struggled immensely this season with a 5-23-6 record.
