After some rumors connecting the Buffalo Sabres with coach Todd McLellan, it seems as though the Sabres will go in a different direction in the search for a new head coach. 

TSN's Bob McKenzie reported on Friday that McLellan is "no longer a consideration" for the Sabres head coaching job, and that the team will continue to look for their next bench boss. 

McLellan has been connected in reports with Buffalo and the Los Angeles Kings for their head coaching vacancies after the end of the season. However, Buffalo has seemingly backed off of the former San Jose Sharks and Edmonton Oilers coach. With Buffalo's search to continue, it seems they still have plenty of candidates to work through. 

Buffalo is looking for, yet, another head coach after firing Phil Housley after just two seasons on the job. 

Keep it locked to WGR and WGR550 for the latest on the Sabres' coaching search.
