Nolan was interviewed for the head coaching job in L.A. He got word that he landed the job so he leaked it to the press. Taylor found out and since the job wasn't written in stone yet, hired Andy Murray instead.

I believe he's rejected assistant coaching roles and even a head coaching job with an expansion team (forget which). And I think there was a *second* case of him leaking his position with a team after an interview for a head coaching role.

His name is always mentioned whenever a head coach spot opens. He always seems to go through the interview process and screw things up somehow.

Likeable guy, but there seems to be more than a few reasons why he's not in the NHL and hasn't been for years.
So in other words he's a moron.
