Toronto Maple Leafs Set To Fire Head Coach Following Recent Announcement

Published January 15, 2024 at 12:26

The Toronto Maple Leafs have fallen short of expectations this season, and one prominent figure in the spotlight is head coach Sheldon Keefe.

Despite receiving a fresh contract in the offseason from new general manager Brad Treliving, Keefe's coaching decisions and the team's underwhelming performance have raised questions about his future behind the bench.

Recent reports, such as from Hockey 24/7 on X, suggest a potential coaching change might be in the cards:

«BREAKING NEWS: Leafs ownership, president, and GM are having a meeting this morning/early afternoon. Looks like a coaching change is coming. Stay tuned.»

While it's essential to take such reports with a grain of salt, considering Hockey 24/7's reliability, the situation indicates that Keefe's job might be on shaky ground given the Leafs' recent performance.

With mounting pressure from fans, media, and potentially within the organization for a change, it remains to be seen if and when the Leafs will part ways with Sheldon Keefe. Notably, they have another former head coach on the bench, Guy Boucher, providing a nearby option if a coaching change is indeed on the horizon.
