Rolston's next move(s)
By Victoria Matiash
UPDATE: Seems a whole week wasn't needed, once Ron Rolston was fully entrenched as head coach. According to the Buffalo News' Bucky Gleason, James Patrick and Kevyn Adams have reportedly been fired as assistant coaches with the Buffalo Sabres. Apparently Teppo Numminen is staying on.
*** Losing the interim tag and hired as permanent head coach of the Buffalo Sabres, Ron Rolston is expected to make some key staff decisions within the next few days. John Vogl of the Buffalo News:
"... Rolston will take next week or so to decide on retaining/hiring assistant coaches, he says on Sabres radio show ..."
At present, James Patrick, Kevyn Adams, and Teppo Numminen are serving as assistant coaches with the Sabres. Jim Corsi is the current goaltending coach, and Doug McKenney and J.T. Allaire are in charge of strength and conditioning.
