QUINN SET TO BECOME RANGERS’ COACH
The New York Rangers appear to have found their new man behind the bench, as B.U. coach David Quinn is set to take the job.
According to ESPN’s John Buccigross, the Rangers and Quinn have agreed to a five-year, $12 million contract.
The New York Post reports Quinn “has/had two seasons remaining on a five-year extension he signed with B.U. in June of 2015. It is not known whether the Rangers are chipping in to buy Quinn out of the deal.”
Quinn, 51, replaces Alain Vigneault, who was let go as head coach the day after the Rangers’ season ended in last month.
He joined B.U. and was their coach for five seasons after one season as an assistant coach with the Colorado Avalanche.
An official announcement is expected this coming week.
