Report: Panthers to interview Capitals' Reirden for head coaching job

The Florida Panthers reportedly plan to sit down with Washington Capitals assistant coach Todd Reirden to discuss their vacant head coaching position.

Reirden has an interview forthcoming with the Panthers, and is also a potential candidate for the same position with the Buffalo Sabres, according to TSN's Frank Seravalli.

The Panthers are also reportedly considering former Montreal Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien, along with Jim Montgomery of the reigning NCAA champion University of Denver.

Reirden was a finalist for the Calgary Flames' job that ultimately went to Glen Gulutzan last June.

He's been a Capitals assistant since being hired in June 25, 2014 - the same day he was fired by the Pittsburgh Penguins following a four-season stint.
