Carlyle fired as Ducks coach
The Anaheim Ducks fired coach Randy Carlyle on Sunday amid a sevengame losing streak and freefall into last place in the Western Conference.
The Ducks announced general manager Bob Murray would take over as interim coach for the remainder of the regular season. Anaheim will name a new coach following the season.
Carlyle, 62, the winningest coach in Ducks history, was in his second stint with Anaheim.
Anaheim has won just two of its last 21 games. The Ducks were second in the Pacific Division on Dec. 18 after winning 11 of 13, but they have gone 2-15-4 since.
