Blackhawks' Scotty Bowman stepping down after 14 years originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Scott Bowman, the father of former Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman, is stepping down from his advisory role with the team, he announced via Twitter.

Bowman was hired by the Hawks in July 2008 to serve a position as senior advisor of hockey operations and work alongside his son Stan Bowman, who was the general manager from 2009-21.

It shouldn't come as a total surprise that Bowman is moving on from the Blackhawks, given the fact his son Stan is no longer leading the hockey operations department.

Stan stepped down from the general manager position in 2021 after an investigation done by law firm Jenner & Block determined he and other team executives failed to take sufficient action after being informed of an alleged sexual assault in 2010.

"I am no longer working for the Chicago Blackhawks as of July 1 as I decided it was time to move on," Scott said in his tweet. "Still love the game and would like to stay involved."

Scott coached in the NHL from 1967-2002 with the St. Louis Blues, Montreal Canadiens, Buffalo Sabres, Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings. From his coaching roles to his executive roles, he has 14 Stanley Cup championships to his name.
