I think he's been waiting for a good reason to s**t can Ireland for a while and this sounds like it.
He just gave him an extension on his contract.
I only hope the new GM maintains Philbin as the HC. New coach means start from scratch. But if Philbin wants to win, I think he needs a new OC.
New GM generally means new coach, unless its someone who would be Philbin patsy.
Good points..........does anybody have a link to the Ross interview? Have to see the video, but I'm not sure Ross not mentioning Ireland is a big deal. Philbin is the one under the gun, at least as far as the press is concerned. Some may blame Ireland for drafting Martin, but you're asking a lot of a guy to foresee this type of fiasco occurring.
