Head Coach fired

Michel Therrien fired as head coach of Habs, Claude Julien hired.

After Boston dismissed him during the Feb. 7 Super Bowl parade, other teams, including the expansion Vegas Golden Knights, quickly inquired about the one-time coach of the year.It's Bergevin's good fortune that Julien decided there is unfinished business in Montreal.

Therrien is a good coach. Julien is an elite one.

The New Begginning You might say the 56-year-old, who grew up just east of Ottawa, landed on his feet.

He has since added a Stanley Cup, an Olympic championship and a World Cup title to his résumé (as an assistant in the latter two cases).

Both are known as fiery characters, but Julien is also regarded as a strong tactician.
