Ducks Fire Head Coach Randy Carlyle, Tab GM Bob Murray Interim Coach

After dropping their seventh game in a row to Philadelphia on Saturday night, the Anaheim Ducks have relieved head coach Randy Carlyle of his duties.

The NHL team also announced Bob Murray as his replacement on an interim basis for the balance of the regular season. The search for a new head coach will reportedly begin in the offseason.

The 62-year-old Carlyle, who was born in Sudbury, Ont., was in his second stint with Anaheim and guided the club to the playoffs in seven of his eight full seasons.

"Difficult decisions need to be made when times are tough, and our play has clearly been unacceptable", Murray, 64, said in a statement.

At this point it nearly feels like it's piling on to keep pointing out every single time the Anaheim Ducks get blown out, but when it keeps happening game after game there really isn't much else you can do. He led them to a Stanley Cup in 2006-07, his second season with the team.

In his other AHL coaching stint, Eakins amassed a record of 157-114-41 over four seasons with the Toronto Marlies, which was highlighted by an appearance in the Calder Cup Final in 2012.

Carlyle leaves the Ducks as the winningest head coach in team history, going 384-256-96 in 736 games with the organization.

Anaheim has made the playoffs six straight seasons but won just two of its last 21 games. The Ducks were outscored 37-8 during their freefall. After a promising start this year, Anaheim has plummeted to last in the West. They lost 12 straight games from December 18 to January 15, then won two in a row, before their current skid.
