Hurricanes head coach Bill Peters has a few days to think before locking himself into another season behind Carolina’s bench.

Peters has until Friday to potentially exercise an exit clause in his contract, team president and interim general manager Don Waddell confirmed Monday to Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer.

Waddell said teams have asked permission to interview Peters, who has an annual salary of $1.6 million.

Regardless of Peters’ decision, it sounds like new owner Tom Dundon may not be done deliberating either.

Peters has held his position for the past four seasons, leading the Hurricanes to a regular-season record of 137-138-53 and zero playoff appearances. He’s set to serve as Canada’s bench boss at the World Championship in May.
