Gylywoychuk Looking for Promotion

After nine years as an assistant, Dwayne Gylywoychuk
is looking for a promotion with the Wheat Kings
 Brandon Wheat Kings' assistant coach Dwayne Gylywoychuk is looking for a promotion.

Gylywoychuk guested on CKLQ's Feedback program Friday, and talked about his potential in filling the vacant head coaching job with the club.

"It's something that interests me, very much so," said Gylywoychuk, "It's the next step in my coaching career that I'd like to take."

The 37-year old Gylywoychuk has been with the Wheat Kings for close to a decade, serving as assistant coach with the team since 2003.

Gylywoychuk added he's made Wheat Kings' general manager Kelly McCrimmon fully aware of his desire to fill the position.

"Kelly is deciding what direction he wants the organization to take. There's a lot of thought process that goes into it and, in due time, Kelly will make the decision," said Gylywoychuk, "He's well aware of my interests and my desire to do it some day and, hopefully, that day comes soon."

The Wheat Kings parted ways with Cory Clouston in mid-May, in part because they didn't want uncertainty with the position during the off-season.

Ironically, the position has now been vacant for over five weeks.

Former Toronto Maple Leafs' assistant coach Tim Hunter and current Moose Jaw Warriors' assistant Mike Vandenberghe are among the others that have shown an interest in the position.

Vandenburg would be wise to stay under the tutelage of Stothers and Miller for few more years. He has always had happy feet though, so you can't change who a guy is. If he stays in Moose jaw, hee will learn so much more. The Wheat Kings are a coaching carousel. I would think it would be tough to work wih the owner. Maybe Mccrimmon has to look at making some changes in his approach.
