Berube 'interested' in Caps' coaching job

“Any time you get an opportunity to be a head coach, you’re interested,” Berube told on Tuesday. “My situation is good here. No one has contacted me about it. We’ll see what happens.”

Berube, 46, and Hunter, 51, played together with the Capitals from 1993-99 and remain good friends. Berube said the two talked often during the season and he was impressed with the progress Hunter made in his six months behind the Capitals bench.

“It was tough for him,” Berube said. “It took time for him to get them to play the way he wanted, but the results came out at the end.”

Berube said coaching the Capitals is something Hunter “truly wanted to do,” but said he was not surprised to see him return to London, Ontario, where his family operates a successful farming business and junior hockey team.
Berube returned to the Flyers as an assistant coach in 2008 and has spent the past three seasons under head coach Peter Laviolette.

Berube is believed to have one more year remaining on his contract with the Flyers. He played two seasons under Capitals general manager George McPhee from 1997-99, but said he has not spoken with the McPhee and is unaware of the Capitals’ timeline on hiring a coach.
