Report: Bruins Interview Former Northeastern University Head Coach

The Bruins have been on the hunt for a new head coach since the sudden firing of Bruce Cassidy. Many names have been linked to the Bruins, with some just recently completing interviews. The Bruins are aiming to have a head coach hired prior to hosting the development camp, which will take place July 11-15. While certain names have been listed as front runners, such as Jay Leach and David Quinn, the Bruins are doing their part by interviewing a handful of names with different backgrounds in hockey.

First reported by Boston Bruins insider Jimmy Murphy who stated the the club interviewed an ‘’under -the-radar” head coaching vacancy last week.

”Multiple NHL sources have confirmed to Boston Hockey Now that former Northeastern head coach and current bench boss for the Colorado Eagles (AHL), Greg Cronin, interviewed to become the next head coach of the Boston Bruins.”

‘’One source confirmed that Cronin was at Warrior Arena, the practice facility for the Boston Bruins, for the interview Thursday. That would go in line with what an NHL source close to the situation confirmed to BHN on Thursday.”

The reports were backed up by another credited Bruins insider Joe Haggerty who confirmed the reports on Twitter:

Prior to joining the Eagles in 2018, Cronin held coaching positions with the New York Islanders and Toronto Maple Leafs, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL, and Colorado College, the University of Maine, and Northeastern University of the NCAA.

Cronin brings a lot to offer when it comes to knowledge of coaching and developing young prospects, something the Bruins need as they have plenty of players in Providence who are waiting their turn to prove themselves in the NHL. While Cronin is an under-the-radar name, he has ties to Boston from his Northeastern days and is where he and his family currently reside. The Bruins are expected to name the head coach in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for who management decides to roll with behind the bench.
