Ben Groulx recently signed an extension to remain as head coach of the Syracuse Crunch, but that pact may not be enough to keep him in the organization.
According to a tweet by Coyotes’ insider Craig Morgan, Groulx has interviewed for the vacant Arizona job. Rick Tocchet was let go on May 9.

Groulx, 53, has served as Crunch head coach since the 2016-17 season. He has guided Syracuse to two 100-plus point seasons in 2017-18 and 2018-19 and posted the best record in franchise history during those seasons.
