Here's a link with more details...Fired stars coach Montgomery said today he has a problem with alcohol and he went to a treatment program.
McCarthy was head coach of the 1989-90 Hershey Bears. He was Whalers assistant for 3 years from 1992-95 under Holmgren and McPlankton. He left for 4 years to be head coach in Springfield and New Haven for 2 years each before re-joining the franchise for the 1st season in Raleigh, 1999-2000. Lavi inherited him from Mo in 03-04 but he stayed with Mo after Lavi was fired in 2008. He started the 09-10 season with Mo and then left as soon as Lavi was hired in Philly later in 2009. I’m pretty sure he’s never been considered as a head coach. And he’s 63 years old and won’t be. He needs to hope Lavi gets hired someplace soon.Has McCarthy ever come close to landing a head coaching job for himself? Just curious, considering he's been following Lavi since he left the Canes.
They're already predicting that Ron Francis may try to sign Laviolette for Seattle.
