According to a well placed source, it appears the Toronto Maple Leafs have a verbal agreement in place with Craig Berube who will be the next head coach for the franchise.

Following the Toronto Maple Leafs' playoff exit and the subsequent firing of head coach Sheldon Keefe, rumors are swirling about his replacement. According to a source closely connected to the Leafs organization, the team has verbally agreed to a deal with their next head coach.

Biz, circle back on the Berube to NJ rumours. Berube played junior hockey in a small town where I'm from, he has told all his buddies here he's going to TOR confirmed. Word has been going around town for the last few days.




The source, who claims to have ties to a family friend of Craig Berube, suggests that Berube is the likely candidate. However, details and contract structure are still being finalized. While the credibility of the source may be questioned, the possibility of Berube taking the reins shouldn't be dismissed.

You will see. Leafs are going to give a week or so. But there has already been a verbal agreement. Details and structure of contract are not done yet. I'm being dead serious.



Berube boasts a Stanley Cup win with the St. Louis Blues in 2019, showcasing his ability to lead a team to championship success. However, his overall coaching record may raise doubts about whether he's the right fit for the Maple Leafs.



While some appreciate Berube's no-nonsense approach, others question if he can make a significant impact behind the Maple Leafs' bench. If the report proves accurate, the Leafs could have a new head coach in place as early as next week.


Do you think Craig Berube will be named the next Leafs head coach?
