Report- Sutter Leaving Devils

via CTVCalgary,

CTV Calgary learned late Monday night that Brent Sutter will announce that he is stepping down as head coach of the News Jersey Devils on Tuesday.

This further fuels rumours that Brent Sutter will return to Alberta to join his brother Darryl, who is currently the Calgary Flames general manager.

There has been some speculation that Daryl Sutter has been waiting to make a decision on his team’s head coaching opening to see if Brent would be available.

The Devils have scheduled a noon conference call today with Brent Sutter in which Sutter is expected to announce he is stepping down as head coach.

Sutter has been pondering his future with the team since the Devils lost Game 7 of their first round series against Carolina on April 28. He has admitted that it has been difficult for him the last two years to be away from his family in Red Deer, Alberta and the team he owns there.
