Virtue Looks Elsewhere
Owen Sound Attack Associate coach Terry Virtue has confirmed he will not be returning to the Ontario Hockey League club for a third season.
Virtue was with the Attack for two years, serving as an Assistant Coach for Mark Reeds and then as the Associate Coach for Greg Ireland last season.
Virtue, via e-mail, relates he's currently pursuing other hockey opportunities and admits his primary desire is to work in proximity to his family which resided last season in West Virginia.
Attack General Manager Dale DeGray concedes he's received inquires about the position as Virtue's desire to be closer to family were well known within hockey circles.
DeGray states he has no immediate candidate in mind.
