I would understand if Sacco was a former Avs player, or had some sort of a office position with the organization. He is basically outside of organization. He was brought from outside of organization to coach the LEM.
Everyone is outside the organization at some point. You aren't born a member of the Avs organization. The idea is they start out in a smaller position with the organization, and work their way up.

They don't usually hire head coaches that aren't already in the organization, or haven't been in the past like Q.

Also, he didn't really have no connection at all with the Avs. He played two years with Billington at the end of their careers in Washington, and he's the one that called him to promote him from Lake Erie to the Avs.
