BUFFALO, N.Y (AP) — The Buffalo Sabres have fired coach Ted Nolan a day after their season ended with a second consecutive last-place finish.
The Sabres hired Nolan in November 2013 on an interim basis after Ron Rolston was fired. It was Nolan’s second stint in Buffalo after he spent two seasons with the Sabres and was the NHL’s coach of the year in 1997.
This time, he took over a rebuilding team that went 23-51-8 this season.
In addition, Murray also announced Danny Flynn has been relieved of his duties as an assistant coach and the contracts of coaching staff members Bryan Trottier and Tom Coolen will not be renewed.
