Bill Peters Weighing His Coaching Options

from Chip Alexander of the News & Observer,

The Carolina Hurricanes are still waiting on an answer from head coach Bill Peters.

Don Waddell, the Canes’ president and interim general manager, said Monday that Peters, who has coached the Hurricanes the past four years, has until Friday to exercise the exit clause on his contract. Waddell confirmed that Peters has one year remaining on his contract, with a $1.6 million salary.

Waddell said there have been calls to the Hurricanes asking permission to speak to Peters about coaching jobs, but did not say how many teams have called.

“I don't think he's fighting to get out the door,” Waddell said of Peters. “But that's his right, that's in his contract. He's got to weigh out all his options."

It says tons about your org if a coach for 4 years that can’t make the playoffs is potentially hesitant to come back.

Don Waddell. That’s all you really need to know. If I were the new owner in Carolina, that’s the one guy I’d be looking to replace ASAP.
