    Same solution as last year. This one is luck dependent. Start a new franchise, I always choose Maple Leaves, don't know if it makes a difference. Right after you start it, go to the coaching tab and check the ratings of your head coach. This seems to be randomly generated and I have gotten A-, A or A+. If it's A- or A, quit without saving and start again.

    If your coach is A+, then fire him. Remember to make a save here, just in case you run into any money issues when resigning him. In my case, I also fired the 3 other senior coaches to save $ in the budget. Name one of your AHL coaches as your interim NHL head coach. Then go to hire coach (menu button), and try to rehire the coach you just fired. Skip ahead a couple of days and wait for his response. In my case, I had problems with rehiring him because he didn't like my market or whatever. During the couple days I skipped, the owner approached me and asked me to adjust the budget. I max-ed out coaching budget and gave the coach another offer with max allowable budget and got him to sign after simming a couple more days. Achievement pops right when he agrees.

    Hope this works for everyone. It took me about 15 franchise resets.

    Credit goes to Darnok for the extra NEEDED info to unlock this achievement. After you finally acquire your A+ coach, you will have to do one more additional thing to guarantee that you'll have the money to rehire the coach after you fire him.

    Youll notice attempt after attempt, youll never have enough budget to re-hire him because the penalty for IMMEDIATELY firing the coach right of the bat barely takes away from the coaching budget.

    In order to acquire a good budget, SIMULATE 2 TO 3 MONTHS of the season before you fire the A+ coach. This lowers your penalty thus gives you tons of budget needed to rehire the coach.

    Again, thanks again to Darnok for the extra information needed to finally get this damn achievement. I went through 3 different A+ coaches until I saw his post.
