Marc Savard ‘Very Interested’ in Potentially Coaching Hockey at High Level

Marc Savard‘s playing career may or may not be over, but when Savard hangs up his stick for good, he might be ready to grab a clipboard.

Savard tweeted last week that he thinks he’s “very interested” in coaching hockey at a high level. While that might not exactly mean the NHL, Savard seems open to something in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), which could always be a springboard for future endeavors.

Savard, of course, hasn’t appeared in a game since January 2011 because of post-concussion syndrome. The 35-year-old inked a seven-year contract extension with the Bruins in 2009, but hits from Matt Cooke and Matt Hunwick have put Savard’s career in jeopardy, as the forward still suffers from symptoms such as headaches and memory loss.

Savard has maintained a positive attitude throughout his difficult time, but it’s obvious the game is still very much in his blood. Perhaps coaching will eventually be a way for him to scratch his hockey itch.
