From Craig Custance in the Sporting News,
The Detroit Red Wings have hired Brad McCrimmon as an assistant coach on Mike Babcock’s staff, filling the vacancy created when Todd McLellan left to take the head job in San Jose.
McCrimmon was the associate coach for the Atlanta Thrashers last season and a finalist for the head job with the Thrashers.
He told Sporting News he has agreed to terms to join the Red Wings and expects to sign the deal when he goes to Detroit next week.
“I was there for three years as a player and loved it,” said McCrimmon, who played for the Red Wings from 1990-93. “Now it’s a great opportunity to go back. It’s a good situation in the sense of the city, the team and what they’ve been doing there for a long time.”
