Assistant coach change for Kings
A Kings source has confirmed an initial L.A. Times report that assistant coach Jamie Kompon will not return to the staff next season, per the choice of the team. Further, John Stevens and Bill Ranford are expected to return. It’s not yet known who Darryl Sutter might choose to fill the position. Bernie Nicholls, who spent half of last season with the team and served as a “consultant,” is not believed to be interested in a full-time coaching role (or at least wasn’t, as of a couple months ago).
Interesting side note is that it would seem Kompon was working under a shorter contract than the rest of the staff. Kings management and other coaches (other than Sutter) are under contract through 2013.
