Former Montreal Canadiens and Colorado Avalanche superstar goalie Patrick Roy has been offered the coaching job for the Avalanche, the Denver Post is reporting, citing several unnamed NHL sources. It adds that Roy is mulling over the decision.

Roy has been offered the job of embattled coach Tony Granato, the Post reports. Roy is the co-owner, general manager and coach of major-junior hockey team the Quebec Ramparts. However, Roy is denying the report.

"I haven’t received an offer … but regardless, I will not comment," Roy told Radio-Canada in an interview.

Roy travelled to Denver earlier this month to meet with Avalanche officials.
