Brent Sutter Waiting For The Phone To Ring

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

His Calgary condo is set to be listed and a good portion of his cattle were put out to pasture earlier in the week, leaving Brent Sutter with an afternoon at the Red Deer Rebels office….

“I would coach anywhere if it is the right situation,” said Sutter, who left one of the most lucrative NHL coaching gigs in New Jersey in 2009 to be closer to his family. “I’m not limited now like I was three years ago as to where I’d go to coach. My personal situation has changed.”

The return to Alberta was prompted by a desire to spend more time with his daughter, Brooke, who was finishing up her final year of high school in Red Deer. She’s entering her third year of college, son Brandon is a fixture with the Carolina Hurricanes and son Merrick oversees the Rebels, where Brent’s wife, Connie, is in charge of merchandising.

His calving operation is in good hands, as is his family and the junior club they run.

“I’m open to whatever but if nothing happens, I’ll just work here at the Rebels helping (GM/coach) Jesse (Wallin) and working on the management side of it. I’ll work around the ranch. Right now, that’s what I’m making plans to do and if that changes and teams are interested, that’s great too. I’m not making calls.
