After being named Amerks Head Coach Chadd Cassidy said he never wants to be an assistant again, unless it is to work for Ron Rolston. That is not a possibility at the moment after the Sabres fired Rolston Wednesday. 

Cassidy followed Rolston to Rochester in 2011 as his assistant. When Ron was promoted to the Sabres last February, Cassidy took over the Amerks. The two are close friends and were on the same bench for eight years.

Now Rolston is gone from the organziation and Cassidy continues to lead his first place Amerks.
