As Bruce Cassidy enters the coaching free-agent market, more names of interest are entering the Flyers coaching search.
There has been little development in the Flyers coaching search over the last few days. For many of the teams in search of a head coach in the NHL – only the New York Islanders and Montreal Canadiens have officially named a head coach – it seems that everything is in a holding pattern.
Does the entry of Barry Trotz into the coaching free agent market change things for the Flyers? There are cases for both answers.
According to a report from ESPN and NHL Network’s Kevin Weekes, the Flyers will “move on” from Mike Yeo in a head coaching role.
In the immediate, it was a move that had to happen. Something had to be done, and a coaching change is certainly an easier way than most to make a change. It’s far from the only change that needs to be made though.
