from Barry Rozner of the Chicago Daily-Herald,
But the truth is he never should have been the head coach of the Hawks.
He didn’t earn the job, he didn’t deserve the job, and he couldn’t do the job.
It changes nothing about his place in Hawks history. It’s merely a chapter to forget.
It might have been different had he gone to the minors to learn his craft, but Savard never wanted to make that commitment, and he only received the position because Bill Wirtz - a decade prior - had promised him a shot someday.
added 3:16pm, Tim Sassone of the Daily-Herald calls the move “gutless”.
added 3:25pm, from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
Sometimes, it IS the coach’s fault when a team struggles — and a change inevitably must be made. Other times — and this is one of them — it’s just the expedient thing to do.
