There's probably a reason why he isn't being "publicized."
He had to resign from his last Head Coaching gig because the stress of that position was affecting his health.

Larry Robinson, stressed out and plagued by headaches, has decided his health is more important than coaching the New Jersey Devils.
The Devils announced Monday Robinson was resigning his post as the NHL hockey team's head coach.
"A lot of things were getting to me," Robinson explained. "I want this team to be successful, but if I can't be at my best and it's bothering me healthwise, I can't do that."
Perennial Stanley Cup contenders, the Devils have been a bit of a disappointment so far this season. New Jersey sits fourth in the NHL's Atlantic Division and 10th in the Eastern Conference with 33 points.
New Jersey has lost two in a row and seven of its last nine games.
The 54-year-old Robinson missed two games this month with flu and sinus problems. He said he continued to have what he called "horrible headaches" and recently underwent tests, including a CT scan. He was told the symptoms were stress-related.
"This is not malicious. Maybe it's selfish on my part. I still think I can coach, I just think that at this stage of my life ... nothing is worth being sick over," Robinson said.
That was a low profile market like NJ. Imagine the pressure he would face in a Canadian market.
