Flames could target Sullivan as coach TheFourthPeriod.com
As the Calgary Flames continue their search for a new head coach, they could be setting their sights on Rangers assistant coach Mike Sullivan, ESPNNewYork.com reports.
Several teams, including the Flames, are looking for a new bench boss and Sullivan is expected to be on a number of team's lists.
"My whole mindset is the fact that I'm employed by the New York Rangers," Sullivan told ESPN. "Do I have aspirations to be a head coach? Sure I do. I think we all do that are in this business. I've been there before, but I'm in a great situation here.
"Opportunities that may present themselves from a career standpoint moving forward, I'll deal with them as they come. Right now, from my perspective, it's been all about the Rangers."
Sullivan was an assistant coach under John Tortorella in Tampa Bay under GM Jay Feaster, now the GM of the Flames, and he played for Calgary from 1993-97.
Tortorella indicated that he wouldn't stand in Sullivan's way if an opportunity presented itself.
