Fired coach says he already quit! What’s really going on?
On Tuesday the Avalanche coaches Francois Allaire, Tim Army and Dave Farrish were relieved from their duty. Allaire was the goaltender coach, Army was an assistant coach and Farrish was also an assistant coach.
Allaire successfully mentored
91.9 Sports Montreal did a brief interview with Allaire. The newly unemployed coach had some interesting comments to share as he says he quit a month a go. “A month ago, I told Joe Sakic that I will not be back with the organization. I am quite shocked to learn I’ve been fired, which is not true at all by the way.”
Earlier this season rumors of disagreement between Roy and general manager Joe Sakic over personnel decisions persisted and it seems Roy believed the team was being steered in the wrong direction. Maybe Patrick Roy was not the only problem.
