Tony Granato Out As Avalanche Head Coach- Sherman New GM

From the good folks at tsn.ca…. more to follow I am sure.

TSM take- a new potential GM may have told the Av’s please deal with this so my first order of business isn’t to fire Tony.

Update:

From Bob McKenzie:

TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports the team has made Greg Sherman the new General Manager. Sherman has been assistant general manager of the Avs for the last seven years; he has been in the organization for the last 13 years.

The team’s new management structure will be as follows:
– Craig Billington remains as Assistant GM
– Eric Lacroix is the new Director of Hockey Operations
– Brad Smith remains as Director of Player Personnel but with expanded duties and responsibilities
– David Oliver, based in Cleveland with the farm team, is the new Director of Player Development

McKenzie reports the moves will be announced in the coming days.

Jacques Cloutier and Dave Barr, goaltending coach Jeff Hackett, assistant to the general manager Michel Goulet and video coordinator PJ DeLuca were the other people relieved of their respective duties on Wednesday.

And, like in that awesome scene from the Nutty Professor, it’s always Sherman Sherman Sherman:
