Hurricanes fire Paul Maurice - Laviolette will take over


Report: Laviolette is new coach
Monday, December 15, 2003

ESPN.com news services

The Carolina Hurricanes have fired coach Paul Maurice, ESPN The Magazine's EJ Hradek reports Monday.

The team has called a news conference for 4 p.m. ET.

The Sports Network reports on its Web site that the Hurricanes' new coach is former Islanders head coach Peter Laviolette. It also reports that Carolina assistant coaches Randy Ladouceur and Don Edwards were fired and replaced by Kevin McCarthy and Jeff Daniels.

Maurice, the second-youngest and longest-tenured coach in the NHL, was in his ninth season with the Hurricanes. He is the club's all-time leader in regular season (268) and playoff (17) wins and regular season (674) and playoff (35) games coached. Maurice led the Hurricanes to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2002, where they lost in five games to the Detroit Red Wings.

Tough to see a guy who made the Stanley cup just two seasons ago get canned. But man, Carolina is playing bad. A move had to be made.

2000-2001 cup finals
2001-2002 canned

I guess that's just the way it is. Pat Burns is the only coach of a Stanley Cup champion that is still with his team, and he only won it 6 months ago.
