BREAKING: Mike Babcock resigns as Blue Jackets head coach

After a week of controversy, on Sunday afternoon the Columbus Blue Jackets announced the resignation of new head coach Mike Babcock. This comes just days before the start of training camp.

Pascal Vincent, who has spent the last two years as an assistant under Brad Larsen, interviewed for the head coaching job this off-season, and was retained by Babcock, will take over as head coach and has been given a new, two-year contract running through the 2024-25 season.

We’ll have much, much more to say about this over the coming days as we process this.
