The AHL decided to suspend the Chicago Wolves head caoch Bob Nardelle for ten games after he used homophobic slur when talking to a referee.


Chris Johnston reported on X:

"Chicago Wolves head coach Bob Nardella has been suspended 10 games by
@TheAHL for directing homophobic language at an official during a game on Saturday."


Considering homophobia has no place anywhere, including in sports, this decision makes sense, but if he does it again, let's hope consequences will be much bigger.

"In a press release, the AHL says it "is committed to building a culture that is safe, inclusive and free from abuse, harassment and all forms of unethical behavior or misconduct."

Nardella can participate in non-game day practices and return to the Wolves bench on Jan. 6."


More details are expected to be released concerning the incident.
