New full-time Buffalo Sabres head coach isn’t wasting any time when it comes to filling out his staff.
After deciding to keep Teppo Numminen on his staff and relieve James Patrick and Kevyn Adams of their coaching duties, Rolston has begun the process of adding new faces to his staff. The first new face is reportedly Lake Superior State University men’s hockey coach Jim Roque.
Jim Roque is leaving Lake Superior to join the Buffalo Sabres as an assistant. Worked with Ron Rolston at Clarkson from 96-99

As the above tweet mentions, Roque worked with Rolston for four years at Clarkson University where they were assistant coaches under Mark Morris. They also worked together at LSSU in 1990.
The team has yet to officially announce the hiring, and no decision has yet to be made on the future of goaltenders coach Jim Corsi.
