The reason cited was the failure of the team to make it out of the first round of the playoffs for the fourth straight year. Hughes was the teams defensive coach and, IMO, it was the defense that failed the team. I don't know but to me you don't clean house only to track some of the same dirt back in. It would have been better if they let Boudreau go and just moved Hughes up in the first place. It's hard to swallow the "After an extensive search, Jim was the best man for the job" line that is being thrown out there.
