Greg Cronin has left his job as head coach at Northeastern to become the assistant coach for the Toronto Maple Leafs. The rumor that Cronin would leave has been in the making for a long time. It was reported in early April that Cronin would leave for the AHL but he said he intended to stay with the Huskies. It is very possible that Cronin was unhappy with the NU administration after they suspended him and assistant coach Albie O'Connell for a couple of key games at the end of they year. Sebastian Leplante will take over as interim coach and will also be a candidate for the job. It should be noted that Leplante lead the Huskies to victories over BC and UNH while Cronin was suspended in late February. BC assistant coach Mike Cavanaugh could possibly be on the Huskies intrest list.
