Ana­heim dis­misses Car­lyle as its coach

The Detroit News - - SPORTS - As­so­ci­ated Press

Ana­heim, Calif. — Ducks gen­eral man­ager Bob Mur­ray tried to give Randy Car­lyle as much time as pos­si­ble to turn things around. But a seven-game los­ing streak and freefall into last place in the Western Con­fer­ence showed Mur­ray that a turn­around wasn’t com­ing soon.

Mur­ray an­nounced that he would take over as in­terim coach for the re­main­der of the reg­u­lar sea­son af­ter fir­ing Car­lyle on Sun­day. Ana­heim will hire a new coach fol­low­ing the sea­son.

The Ducks are the sixth team to make a change this sea­son, join­ing Los An­ge­les, Chicago, St. Louis, Ed­mon­ton and Philadel­phia.

Car­lyle, 62, the win­ningest coach in Ducks his­tory, was in his se­cond stint with Ana­heim. He led the team to the Stan­ley Cup in 2007.
