HELP WANTED: CANADIAN NHL TEAM SEEKING COO
Published December 4, 1997
The Maple Leafs are "searching across North America" for a new COO, according to Marty York of the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. Sources told York that the new COO will have "at least the same level of authority" as team President & GM Ken Dryden, and "may even rank higher than Dryden." The Leafs have already hired a head-hunter, and sources say that the "leading candidate" is former Trail Blazers President Marshall Glickman. Glickman was "reluctant to discuss" the Leafs yesterday, but "did confirm" that he has had "recent conversations" with the franchise, specifically with Chair Steve Stavro and Minority Partner Larry Tanenbaum. Others who have been approached "either directly or indirectly" include IHL Aeros President Richard Adler, CFL Chair John Tory and Blue Jays Counsel Gord Kirke. Tory "confirmed" the position was brought up to him; Adler was unavailable and Kirke declined to comment (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 12/4).
