I’m a day late on this one, but as of Thursday’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Bruins assistant coach Craig Ramsay is still one of four finalists for the Atlanta Thrashers’ head coaching position.
“The four remaining candidates are Craig Ramsay, John Torchetti, Don Lever and Bill Peters,” wrote Chris Vivlamore. “Ramsay and Torchetti are considered the front-runners. A fifth candidate, Scott Arniel, was interviewed but took the head coaching job with the Blue Jackets.”
Vivlamore also quoted Atlanta GM Rick Dudley as not being in a rush to hire a coach before next week’s draft. So this could drag on into July.
