I was totally unaware of all of the coaching changes in the OHL this summer. I guess the biggest surprise was that George Burnett was going to be the coach of Guelph.

Congrats to Dave Bell. I really liked him as a coach and was looking forward to seeing what he would do with the guys this year. I'm going to hope that the new coach is someone that will connect with the guys and that will do great things with them.

He's been in the league long enough that he is probably ready and I don't think they want to bring in a new guy this close to camp at least not as head coach

Not impossible, but promoting Billy to head coach seems very unlikely.

If Joey Burke thought Billy was almost ready, he would never have signed Bell to a three year extension with Niagara – just two months ago.

Is Ted Nolan still around ?

I never thought Bell would last the full 3 years anyways? And yea he might not be 100% ready but not sure you have many more options available

Keep in mind that without an experienced and/or respected head coach, it will be very difficult to recruit players like Joshua Norris, Jack Randl, Brady Smith, Nate McDonald, etc...

The Ice Dogs are in year 2 of a 3 year rebuild - this is not the time to put an inexperienced coach into a position he is clearly not ready for.

This is a great opportunity for the Ice Dogs to bring in someone who cannot only coach but also have the credibility to bring in elite high-end talent.

Not ready according to who though he's been around for what 8 years that's probably enough experience like i said earlier who's out there that is a better option with ohl coaching experience

We can say that there is no-one out there who has OHL coaching experience but that is an assumption and unless we advertise the fact that we are looking for someone...then we will never know who might have been interested or available. I say that we should at least try to find someone with a lot more experience and hopefully a winning track record. Billy is good but I still think he is not ready to be a head coach.

According to Joey Burke!

If Joey, felt Billy was either ready or a better head coach than David Bell, he would have been promoted him two months ago.
