Coaching career

Born in Saint-Isidore-d'Auckland, Quebec, Perron was an assistant coach with the National Hockey League's Montreal Canadiens under Jacques Lemaire for one season before being named head coach in 1985. As a rookie, head coach, Perron won a Stanley Cup with the Canadiens. Perron would spend three seasons as the Canadien's head coach before being fired after the 1987-88 season. The next year, he was hired by the Quebec Nordiques as a temporary midseason replacement. He also served as an assistant coach for Canada at the 1987 Canada Cup. Later, Perron joined the International Hockey League's San Francisco Spiders as their head coach and general manager for one season, followed by a short stint with the Manitoba Moose.

Perron's tough and often authoritarian coaching style resulted in tumultuous relationships with several of his players and staff, including a long-standing public feud with former Canadiens player Chris Nilan.

Post career

After his professional coaching career, Perron became a hockey analyst for different media outlets in Quebec and has appeared regularly on TQS's sports talk show 110%. He was often mocked for his incorrect use of proverbs and idioms and a book, Les Perronismes supposedly listing his most famous linguistic faux-pas was published in 2001.

In 2004, Perron was named the coach of the Israel's Under-18 and senior men's national teams. He led both teams to new heights with Israel being promoted to Division I for one year. He left after two seasons but returned in 2011 and led the Under-18 team to a IIHF World U-18 Division II Group B championship in 2013.
