Report: Dineen hired as AHL assistant.

The Toronto Globe and Mail reports that Gord Dineen, the Ducks’ top minor-league coach a year ago, will be one of two assistant coaches next season for the Toronto Marlies, the Maple Leafs’ AHL affiliate.

Dineen was the Iowa Chops’ head coach last season, and was the top assistant to brother Kevin Dineen the year before when the Portland Pirates were the Ducks’ AHL affiliate. He will have the distinction of being the only head coach in Chops history, as well as being immortalized in this non-fight with Willi Plett in the mid-80’s.
