Mike Yeo tops list as Senators begin search for new coach

Less than a week after giving bench boss Dave Cameron and his assistants their walking papers, sources confirmed a report Tuesday the newly appointed Senators GM turned his talk into action by sitting down for a face-to-face interview with former Minnesota Wild coach Mike Yeo on Sunday.

While it’s only the first step in Dorion’s search for a new voice to try to lead this club back to the playoffs, it is significant that Yeo, 42, who was fired in February by the then-struggling Wild, was the first man interviewed for the job because he’s considered to be one of the best candidates available.

It is believed Dorion will continue the discussions this week with former Tampa Bay Lightning coach Guy Boucher and former Dallas Stars coach Marc Crawford, two others who will get a look.
