Assistant Coach Jay Leach to Leave Caps

Per Capitals Insider:

Assistant Coach Jay Leach will not return to the Caps after five seasons with the team, GM George McPhee confirmed this afternoon. Leach coached the defensemen.

"It was a mutual decision," McPhee said. "He's a good man and a good coach and he helped us get to where we are."

Coach Bruce Boudreau's other two assistants, Dean Evason and Dave Prior, will return next season. Boudreau inherited Leach, Evason and Prior when he took over in Nov. 2007.

A replacement for Leach has not been named.

H/t to b.orr4, who started an earlier FanPost thread on assistant coaches here.

Is this perhaps the beginning of the need for accountability that we've been discussing?
