The Griffins now control decisions on their coaching staff (it was the Red Wings last year). So with Mike Stothers out, the new coach will be named Wednesday morning. The team's press release ...

WHAT: The Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League will introduce their eighth head coach in franchise history.

WHEN: Wednesday, July 23, beginning promptly at 10 a.m.

WHERE: The Huntington Club at Van Andel Arena. (Located on the ground level of the arena lobby, next to the banquet rooms.)

Media should park in the horseshoe lot/loading dock arena behind arena, and enter the building through the Fulton Street lobby doors.

WHO: Griffins general manager Bob McNamara and the new coach will address the media and be available for one-on-one interviews.

"He also skated for Chicago and Minnesota, and fought such Detroit Red Wings as Joe Kocur and Bob Probert during games during that time."
