It was believed that Berube would carry the "interim head coach" tag in the beginning but that is not the case. CSN Philly's Tim Panaccio reports that the Flyers have signed Berube to a two-year deal with the terms of the deal not disclosed.
Berube, 48, has been a Flyers assistant coach since August 2008 but has been coaching with the organization since 2004. He was a Flyers assistant in 2006-07 before serving one season as head coach of the Phantoms in 2007-08 guiding them to a 49-27-7 record. As a player, Berube played parts of seven seasons in Philadelphia.
This is not the first time that Berube has been mentioned as a potential head coaching candidate.
Those around the league believe the Berube hiring is great for the team and many cite the players' love for Berube as one of the main reasons. It is believed that the Flyers will now be laying it all on the line for the coach.
