Keep in mind Hunter is co-owner, president and head coach of the London Knights.
So he has his finger in every pot of that organization.. He tried his hand at NHL coaching and decided to return to his post in the OHL.
Money is not his only motivating factor here.

AV just got 2mm a year to coach the Rangers. If I was Hunter, it would be a no brainer to stay where I'm at.
Plus, you would think if he really wanted to coach at the pro level there would be a job for him in the NHL- assuming he's not just thinking about the money. I just don't see a fit here, but of course this is all my opinion.
oh that bit i didn't know - it was just presented that he has a lot of money at the OHL level
i'm sure Nonis (or rather the Marlie's GM) will make the best decision.
