Ted Nolan first established himself as a junior coach, and a report out of Vancouver says he could be heading back to that level.
Nolan has had talks about coaching the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League, according to the Vancouver Province. The newspaper says negotiations are in the early stages but that Nolan is interested in the position.
The Sabres fired Nolan last month with two years remaining on his contract.
He was coach of Sault Ste. Marie of the Ontario Hockey League for six seasons (1988 to 1994), and it helped him get his first NHL head coaching job with the Sabres in 1995. He was out of hockey for eight seasons after a split with the Sabres before taking over Moncton of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for one season in 2005-06.
