Report Of Roque To Buffalo As Assistant Is False

If this morning's story you may have seen on the internet stating that Ron Rolston has hired Lake Superior head coach Jim Roque as an assistant with the Sabres is true, it's certainly news to Jim Roque.

"I don't know where that's coming from," Roque told me less than an hour ago.  "Ron and I are good friends, he's the godfather of my youngest daughter.  But he hasn't offered me a job."

Even if he were offered the job, it's not a certainty he would accept it.

"I like it here," Roque said.  "My family is here and I don't plan on going anywhere."

I would’ve interviewed Andy Murray (sorry, WMU fans and alum).  He would’ve been a helluva hire.

About The Sabres Observer

Dave Davis has covered the Buffalo Sabres for various NHL accredited websites and newspapers since 2003.  He was the senior writer and Sabres correspondent for The Fourth Period, covered hockey for Western New York Sports and Leisure Magazine, and has had articles featured on NHL.com, FOX Sports, Yahoo Sports and in New York Sportscene.  Sabres news and notes can be found on his Twitter page.

Davis originally garnered media attention in 2002 as leader of a lobbying campaign working in unison with potential buyer Mark Hamister attempting to secure state financing to keep the Sabres in Buffalo.  In 2004, Davis was briefly back on the airwaves - this time reaching the finals of the inaugural "WGR Rookie" sports talk competition.  After a few years of "syndicating" his articles on various sites, along with doing some internet radio work, Davis now devotes his new media efforts to bringing quality Sabres related opinions and content to Kukla's Korner.
