The Pittsburgh Penguins are scheduled to talk to Marc Crawford and Ron Wilson about their head coaching vacancy, TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reported on Tuesday.

Crawford was the head coach of the Quebec Nordiques, Colorado Avalanche, Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars and coached 529 games with the Vancouver Canucks.

He won the Jack Adams Award for NHL Coach of the Year in 1995, won a Stanley Cup with the Avalanche in 1996 and also coached the Canadian men's hockey team at the Nagano 1998 Olympic Winter Games.

Wilson, 59, coached four NHL teams over the last two decades, including the Anaheim Ducks, Washington Capitals, San Jose Sharks and Toronto Maple Leafs with a 648-561-101-91 record. He led the Capitals to the Stanley Cup Final in 1998.

Hired in 2008 by the Maple Leafs, he led the team to a 34-35-13 mark in his first season with the club finishing 12th in the Eastern Conference.

The following year, the team posted a 30-38-14 record and finished last in the Conference.

In 2010-11, Wilson's Leafs went 37-34-11 and finished 10th in the Conference. He was relieved of his duties from the team on Mar. 2, 2012.

Wilson is also a candidate for the head coaching job with the Florida Panthers after taking part in the interview process with general manager Dale Tallon last week.
