The Komets announced late Wednesday that they are pushing back the announcement of the next coach until Monday. The Franke brothers say the candidates are so equal that they want more time to think about it, talk to Pat Bingham and John Marks one more time and to check on references. Both coaches say they are continuing to work on recruiting anyway.
The team has also made a revised one-year offer to goaltender Kevin St. Pierre. St. Pierre, who has already sold his house, said he'll consider it and have an answer by Monday.
General Manager David Franke said the Komets are continuing to talk to Colin Chaulk and Guy Dupuis. He has not talked to Tom Lawson.
