It will be some time, likely, before we know for sure what precipitated today's events. However, for now, the Dallas Stars have made some personnel shuffles, and the Texas Stars have a new bench boss. Following Jim Montgomery's dismissal as the head coach of Dallas, Texas Stars head coach Derek Laxdal has been promoted to assistant coach in Dallas. With that news, the Texas Stars have also promoted Neil Graham to be their new head coach. Travis Morin will join him on the bench as an assistant.
Neither Graham nor Morin have been tagged with an "interim" label, meaning that this is a setup that Texas seems to plan on running for a little bit.
