The Anaheim Ducks have hired their 11th head coach in the franchise's history today, announcing Greg Cronin as the team's new head coach.


The 60 year old, Cronin will be a first-time NHL head coach in Anaheim. He has 12 years experience as an assistant coach in the NHL.

"While we did cast a wide net in searching for the next head coach, it became clear to me that Greg would be the ideal fit for the position," said Ducks general manager Pat Verbeek. "Being a young team, I felt we needed a teacher of the finer points of the game, and someone who has worked extensively over time with talented young players, helping them develop into successful NHL players. Greg has done all that and more, and we are excited to name him head coach of the Anaheim Ducks."



Cronin has over 30 years coaching experience beginning his coaching career as an assistant at Colby College, the same place where he began his collegiate hockey career. Cronin spent the past five seasons as the head coach of the AHL's Colorado Eagles.

"I'm excited and honored to be named head coach of the Anaheim Ducks," said Cronin, "This team has a fantastic future ahead, and I'm very grateful to the Samueli family and Pat Verbeek for entrusting me with this amazing opportunity."
