from Tim Wharnsby of the Globe and Mail,
When asked about a report on the weekend that said the former coach had recently contacted the NHL team about a job — but not the senior consultant position he was offered three months ago — Bowman said he hasn’t talked to the Maple Leafs since June.
Instead, Bowman said he told Detroit Red Wings owner Mike Illitch and general manager Ken Holland in June that he would return for a 15th season with that team.
“I really want to stay with Detroit,” said Bowman, who will turn 74 in a week. “When I went there 14 years ago to coach, I really wanted this to be my last stop.”
