It wasn’t a press release, but rather a simple tweet:
Edmonton Oilers General Manager Steve Tambellini announces the club will not renew the contract of Head Coach Tom Renne
And so begins the real speculation as to who will be the Oilers next head coach.
Mercifully at least Renney now knows. I can’t imagine anything worse than not knowing whether or not you have a job and missing out on other employment opportunities because you don’t know. The Oilers likely already have some candidates in mind and hopefully Renney has some lines on something in mind as well. We wish you luck Tom.
