Report: Adam Oates is the new head coach of the Washington Capitals

9 Comments

TSN’s Darren Dreger is “hearing” Adam Oates is the new head coach of the Washington Capitals. (In which case we’d be shocked if Oates wasn’t the new head coach of the Washington Capitals.)

Oates, the former NHL star that piled up 1,420 points in 1,337 games, has been an assistant coach in Tampa Bay and New Jersey since retiring following the 2003-04 season.

We wonder what the “worst athlete” in DC thinks about this hiring.

More to come.

Update: Nick Kypreos is also reporting Oates as new head coach in Washington.
