It’s a mess right now if you are a Boston Bruins fan. There’s the uncertainty surrounding Patrice Bergeron and whether or not he’ll return next season. You have guys like Brad Marchand and Charlie McAvoy, amongst others, who are out for the foreseeable future with injuries. Then just to put the icing on top of the cake, the Bruins relieved former head coach Bruce Cassidy of his duties!
So now, the Boston Bruins are looking for a head coach. There are several names being flown around for interviews. One name that intrigued me was Jay Leach. After consulting with fellow CGS writer and podcaster Matt Burnett, I’m starting to come around on the idea that Jay Leach is a great fit as the Bruins next head coach. Why? Let’s get into it.
Jay Leach could be a players coach for the Bruins!
Jay Leach could be a great fit for the Bruins because he is a players coach. The big thing with Bruce Cassidy was his tendency to call out his players openly. Sometimes, that’s good! But when you lose the locker-room, that’s where it can go downhill. Enter Jay Leach! Leach is a guy that players seem to respond well to, for the most part. He’s done well with his season as assistant coach of the Seattle Kraken. Maybe he’s the refreshing voice that the Bruins need going forward.
Jay Leach has been with the Bruins before!
Jay Leach has been in the Bruins organization previously. Before he went to Seattle, Leach was the head coach of the Providence Bruins. So he’s seen some of these guys before when they played in Providence. It helps to have some familiarity with an organization. So, Jay Leach has an advantage there with the Bruins!
Jay Leach makes a lot of sense for being the Bruins next head coach. Who do you want to see for the black and gold, behind the bench? Let me know your thoughts on Twitter or tweet us @CouchGuySports. Let the embrace debates begin!
