Sean Burke Still Looking For The Right Job

from Craig Morgan of FoxSports Arizona,

Former Coyotes executive Sean Burke said he is pondering a position with another NHL club and expects to make a decision quickly.

Burke was reportedly in discussions with both the Toronto Maple Leafs and San Jose Sharks at one point, and there has also been speculation tying him to Calgary and former Coyotes assistant general manager Brad Treliving, who is now the Flames GM.

Burke said he has already turned down a pair of offers from teams that still wanted him to fill a dual role as an executive and an assistant coach, but he would not specify which team he is still considering.

"The role I would be taking on is something I really would enjoy," Burke said Wednesday. "There's not a lot of questions left about it. It's just a matter of getting it ironed out. If it is the right fit it will probably happen in the next week."

Burke's contract with the Coyotes expired on June 30, and he chose not to return because he wanted a chance at a greater management role.

"I felt it was time to turn the page," he said. "There wasn't going to be the opportunity to continue to advance and grow with the Coyotes. That happens in a lot of organizations with a lot of people."
