Firing of John Farrell brings back memories, lessons learned for Bruins’ Bruce Cassidy

Boston Bruins

DENVER – It was 10 years ago when the Red Sox swept the Rockies to win the 2007 World Series at Coors Field. John Farrell was the pitching coach for the Red Sox, and today, he was fired as the club’s manager after enjoying great success in Boston.

News spread quickly here as the Bruins face the Avalanche tonight at Pepsi Center. Since Bruce Cassidy is relatively new in Boston, he did not know Farrell, but the Bruins coach can empathize.
