TORONTO – The Toronto Marlies new head coach Greg Moore is set to begin his tenure with the club today. Moore will replace interim co-head coaches Rob Davidson and A.J. MacLean, who are sitting in for Sheldon Keefe after he was promoted to the Maple Leafs. Moore has spent the past number of weeks with the Toronto Maple Leafs learning the ropes from former Head Coach Keefe.
Moore brings more than 350 AHL games played as a player and over four years of playing in Europe’s top leagues. Most recently, Moore spent time in the USHL as the Head Coach of the Chicago Steel. Additionally, Moore has served as the assistant coach for the 2016, 2017, and 2018 World Hockey Championship for the U-17 and U-18 squads.
Last year, the Steel posted a 37-21 record and made an appearance in the USHL finals, where they got knocked out by Sioux Falls Stampede.
Since the co-head coaches took over in November, the Marlies have posted a 7-5 record. The power-play record also nudged slightly under the tandem, going 9-for-43 on the man advantage.
Moore’s first game as a head coach comes in Belleville on Saturday night. The game will be broadcasted on AHL TV.
