Offer To Ireland

The Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League have offered their Head Coaching position to Greg Ireland.

The 46 year old Ireland, who recently had stints as a Head Coach in the American Hockey League at San Antonio & at Grand Rapids, is said to be considering the offer, and it's believed he will accept the position in short order.

Ireland would replace Mark Reeds who guided Owen Sound to the Ontario Hockey League Championship last season and then moved onto become an Assistant Coach with the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League.

When contacted by Bayshore Broadcasting, Attack General Manager Dale DeGray elected not to confirm, nor deny, the Head Coaching offer had been given to Ireland

Last year's Assistant Coach Terry Virtue was also on the Attack shortlist to be elevated to Head Coach in Owen Sound.

Virtue is expected to remain with Attack, conceivably with elevated responsibilities.

In 2005/06, Terry Virtue did play for Greg Ireland, briefly, at Grand Rapids in the A.H.L.
