In what has been the hottest topic off the ice for the Broncos, Head Coach / GM Dean Chynoweth will return next season for his option year.
"My plan is to be here. The Board (of directors) has made it clear they wanted to wait to see how things played out...they held the option year in my contract and they have exercised that option," commented Chynoweth from his office this morning.
From an outside perspective, it appeared the Board was contemplating making a change even though the team posted a 2nd straight 40 win season and a potential profitable season for the 2nd year in a row. Chynoweth, who was pretty much in limbo all season, wouldn't comment on that aspect.
"It doesn't really matter what I think. I have a job to do and am paid to do the job. We came up short this season. Now we will regroup and try to put ourselves into a position to be better next year."
Dean also talked about the playoff series with Medicine Hat and what he thought the difference was. I'll blog those thoughts at a later time.
