According to a published report, Toronto Maple Leafs general manager John Ferguson plans to meet with Toronto Marlies coach Paul Maurice about the club's head coaching job.
The Toronto Star reports that Maurice remains the only candidate for the job, and Ferguson has yet to speak to any other potential candidates for the job.
"That is accurate," Ferguson told the Star, when asked if he would be meeting Maurice this week. "I expect we will have a coach in place before any of the teams looking for managers have their managers in place."
Maurice went 41-29-6-4 with the Leafs AHL affiliate this season.
