Everyone was fired.

Greg Gilbert was fired yesterday as head coach of the Toronto Marlies, and his assistants, Joe Paterson and Jim Hughes were given permission to pursue other opportunities. Link
King would be the 1st assistant hired. One more to go.

He spoke about the King hiring and having another coach in mind at yesterdays press conference:
