Today new reports are confirming that former Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe might not be out of a job for long. According to one insider, he will be interviewing with the New Jersey Devils.

Sheldon Keefe's time in Toronto came to a frustrating end after the Maple Leafs' loss to the Boston Bruins. After being eliminated he made a comment that many believed signaled the end of his tenure in Toronto.
"When teams play the Leafs, they set up the game for the Leafs to beat themselves."

Within a couple of days Sheldon Keefe was relieved of his duties as the head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs. After being fired Sheldon Keefe put out a heartwarming message to the city, the team, and his players.
Now it seems that Sheldon Keefe is still valued around the league by teams as a potential head coach. New reports from Pierre LeBrun have confirmed that the New Jersey Devils have been given permission to and will speak with Sheldon Keefe about their head coaching position.

Sheldon Keefe was fired due to his lack of postseason success. No one has been able to find success in the playoffs in Toronto in many years. A new home for Sheldon Keefe could provide the opportunity he needs to show exactly how good of a coach he can be and get over that playoff threshold.
