No confirmation from the Hamilton Bulldogs, but it appears the team has found its new head coach.
The Hockey News is reporting the Dogs have hired John Gruden.
An official news conference will be held at 10am Friday.
Gruden was thrust into the national headlines when he was fired, not once but twice, by Flint Firebirds owner Rolf Nilson.
Nilsen reportedly fired Gruden in November over the playing time of his son, Hakon Nilsen.
The 45-year-old Virginia, Minnesota native was also fired by Nilsen in February before the OHL stepped in and suspended the Firebirds’ owner for five years.
