Nachbaur to Chiefs premature

Spokane Chiefs general manager Tim Speltz denied reports that former Tri-City Americans coach Don Nachbaur has been hired to coach the Western Hockey League team.

According to veteran reporter Gregg Drinnan in Kamloops, citing two sources, Nachbaur is all but signed to replace Hardy Sauter.

"It could be right but it's not now,"  Speltz said Wednesday morning.  "We do not have a deal done with Don Nachbaur.

"I talked to Don yesterday. By all means, he's a candidate for sure. He's in Vegas, we talked, we're going to talk. He's a valid candidate, a very accomplished coach."
