Report: Roy to become Avs new coach?

Patrick Roy's brother Stephane may have spilled the beans after posting on Facebook that Patrick is set to become the new head coach of the Colorado Avalanche.

"They're discussing the final details of an arrangement. Colorado is going to be very happy. Patrick is looking for a new challenge," Stephane Roy told the Denver Post.

Stephane Roy posted on his Facebook page Monday night, "For all my friends I'd like you to know before the official news spreads that my older brother will be the new coach of the Colorado Avalanch(sic)."

On April 28, the Avalanche fired coach Joe Sacco after missing the playoffs for a third straight season.

After his Hall of Fame playing career ended, Patrick Roy joined the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League as the team's co-owner, GM and coach. He has compiled a 307-128-32 record as coach, including a Memorial Cup championship.

The Avs would not confirm or comment on the report.
