Greys Coaching Clouded

Owen Sound | by Fred Wallace  

Comments from Greys General Manager Steve McIver after new Coach hiring


It appears an executive tug of war has developed with the Owen Sound Greys Junior B Hockey team.

Yesterday, it was confirmed that Brian O'Leary had been hired to be the head coach of the Greys replacing Rob Brown who guided the team from the early Fall to the conclusion of the regular season.

However, once the announcement of the O'Leary hiring was made, a number of calls and e-mails indicated the announcement was premature, and might not be accurate

Greys General Manager Steve McIver confirmed to Bayshore Broadcasting this morning that the hiring of Brian O'Leary was official.

McIver would not comment further on the operation of the Greys Hockey Club, but it appears there are two distinct factions emerging; one side with McIver as General Manager, and another group fronted by Team President David Arsenault.

One story in circulation this morning has David Arsenault firing Steve McIver from his position as GM. 

McIver will not comment on that scenario

Arsenault is not retuning phone calls to Bayshore Broadcasting

Another story making the rounds has Arsenault in talks with the Ontario Hockey Association about potentially moving the Greys from the city.

But because the Greys are listed as a not for profit community organization, such a move cannot be undertaken without an Annual General Meeting.

McIver did relate there was no A.G.M. last year and to this point there has not been one this year, so any talk of shifting the Greys would be a violation a existing bylaws.

The Greys have a Prospects Camp planned for late April and a Rookie Camp in July
