John Tortorella named head coach of USA's World Cup team
John Tortorella is heading back behind the bench.
The former NHL head coach has been named bench boss for USA's 2016 World Cup team.
Internationally, he served as head coach of USA's World Championship team in 2008, guiding the team to a sixth-place finish.
Tortorella, however, has been out of the game in an official capacity since the 2013-14 season when he was let go by the Canucks after one underwhelming season, which included a multi-game suspension.
