Former Washington Capitals enforcer and current Philadelphia Flyers assistant coach Craig Berube is interested in taking over behind the bench of the Capitals according to a report by CSNWashington.com's Capitals insider Chuck Gormley. However, Berube has acknowledged that no one from the Capitals have contacted him about the job.
Any time you get an opportunity to be a head coach, you're interested. My situation is good here. No one has contacted me about it. We'll see what happens
Berube played for the Capitals from 1993-99 along with former coach Dale Hunter. After retiring from playing after 2004, Berube went into coaching as an assistant of the AHL's Philadelphia Phantoms. In 2006, Berube was elevated to head coach, but when an assistant's job was made available with the Flyers, Berube hopped on that opportunity. In 2007, Berube took over for the Phantoms and compiled a record of 46-27-7 in his only full season as a head coach.
