It seems that an unusual privacy scandal has abruptly ended Mike Babcock’s tenure as head coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets. Babcock, aged 60, resigned on Sunday, just three days before the start of training camp, without even coaching a single NHL game for the team. The Columbus Blue Jackets had recently appointed him as their new coach on July 1. According to the Columbus Dispatch, his resignation followed allegations made during last Tuesday’s episode of the Spittin’ Chiclets podcast. In the podcast, Babcock was accused of violating players’ privacy by demanding access to their phones and scrolling through their photos.
Initially, the team stood by Babcock as the team captain and other players defended his actions. However, the support shifted when it became evident that some younger players were uncomfortable with his behavior, as reported by ESPN.
