Coonelly denies hiring Huntington

From the wires:

"It is too early to comment on possible candidates for our general manager position," Coonelly said. "We have had numerous interviews with multiple candidates, all of which would make for an excellent choice.

"As I have stated in the past, this is an extremely critical hire. It is important that we find the right person for the general manager position who can move our baseball operations forward."

Nutting said basically same thing about Coonelly, though. I find it hard to believe that both the PG and the BCT would greenlight their stories on bad information, but since this is about as big as Pirate news gets in September, maybe Meyer and Perrotto are jumping the gun. Just take this all for what it's worth. I doubt we'll know anything official until Monday.
