The National Football League is famous for having coaching staffs that consistently produce head coaches for other teams via their coordinators. Bill Parcells gave the world Tom Coughlin and Bill Belichick; and Belichick gave the world Eric Mangini and Josh McDaniel. So it doesn’t always work.

Mike Babcock of the Detroit Red Wings is becoming that kind of coach. He previously saw assistant coaches Todd McLellan (San Jose) and Paul MacLean (Ottawa) leave for head coaching jobs with teams desperately hoping they’d bring some of that Motor City magic with them. Now another assistant has found a head coaching gig with the same expectations.

The Carolina Hurricanes have named Bill Peters, who worked under Babcock for the last three seasons, as the 13th head coach in franchise history and the first hired by someone other than Jim Rutherford.
