General manager Mike Grier says that the San Jose Sharks’ coaching search will be a “long process.”

“We’re just in the early stages of it, going down the interviews, so nothing really to report too much on it," Grier said on Tuesday, after the Sharks won the 2024 NHL draft lottery. "We’ll be thorough and have kind of a long process."

San Jose Hockey Now has learned that the Sharks have interviewed current assistant coach Ryan Warsofsky for their head coach position.
