Ron Wilson named assistant coach to Hamilton Bulldogs

MONTREAL – Montreal Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier announced Tuesday the appointment of Ron Wilson as assistant coach of the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League. He will assist Clément Jodoin, who was named the Bulldogs’ head coach last July 22.

In 2010-11, Ron Wilson completed his second season as assistant coach of the Chicago Wolves and his 15th season as assistant coach in the AHL. During his two-year tenure the Wolves posted an 88-54-0-6-12 record (.606) in 160 regular season games. Chicago ranked first in the West Division in 2009-10.
So no, not that one

Sounds about right though. Leafs coach only worth the assistant job in the farm

More like welcome back, he was the Dogs head coach when Lever was brought up to the Habs. Good to have him back.

Wow, that was scary. What a mean thread title. Save everyone a heart-attack and rename it "New Bulldog Assistant Coach RW". Getting confused with Right Wing is a lot less traumatic than Ron Wilson.

Funny part is Wilson is by far the worst coach in the NHL.

So, one Ron Wilson coaches a developing collection of minor-league players in an Ontario city with long-suffering fans desperate for an NHL-caliber team and ultimately ends up giving the Habs points as a main part of his job, and the other coaches the Bulldogs.

People have short memories, he coached in Hamilton most of the 2000's & even played for the Habs in 94. So yeah....Welcome back!

Edit: I've heard our Ron Wilson in interviews before talking about the confusion & he always says he's the better looking Ron Wilson.

For a minute I thought, "Ron Wilson only worthy of assisting in the AHL now, seems about right".

I got scared for a moment; I thought that the Leafs bought out Ron Wilson's contract and could only find employment as an assistant coach of an AHL team.

I haven't been paying attention to hockey news for the past couple of days, so when I read the title I went looking for a "Ron Wilson fired" thread on the Leafs board.
