Birks as Head Coach? Canada’s OTHER National Sport:

There have been rumblings that last season’s Merritt Centennials co-coach and director of player personnel Bill Birks should be considered for the vacant head coach and GM position with the Cents. Although I don’t know if Birks is being considered for the position, I know for a fact that he is interested in the job. I would think that based on his experience with the players last season, Birks will be considered for the job, but there will likely be a lot of interest from across North America. I’m sure the people involved with club (although I’m still trying to track down who’ll be making these decisions) know that time is of the essence and they’ll need to have someone in place sooner than later.

I got this email from Shauna Clinging at Merritt Printing this morning on behalf of the Nicola Valley Minor Lacrosse Association:
