Montgomery’s out of Panthers coaching mix, will stay in NCAA


The Florida Panthers have been making news with their front office moves lately, but in at least one case on Friday, it’s about omitting a name.

After interviewing with the team for its vacant head coaching job in late April, Jim Montgomery has decided to take his name out of the running. He told the Denver Post that he’ll stick with the University of Denver, where he just won an NCAA title.

TSN’s Darren Dreger notes that Montgomery might have been a candidate to coach the Buffalo Sabres, as well.
