The search for a new NHL head coach in Ottawa continued on Wednesday as the Senators interviewed Kitchener Rangers head coach Peter DeBoer for their vacancy.

Other rumoured candidates for the job include former Atlanta coach Bob Hartley and Sault St. Marie Greyhounds coach Craig Hartsburg. John Tortorella, who was fired as head coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday, is also reportedly a favourite.

DeBoer, who's been behind the bench in Kitchener since 2001, has 539 wins behind the bench in junior and led the Rangers to a Memorial Cup in 2003. He also led the Rangers to the Cup final last month, where they lost to the WHL's Spokane Chiefs.

DeBoer is under contract with the Rangers through the 2009-10 season, but has a 30-day window in his contract that allows him to pursue other opportunities.
