Randy Carlyle Fired as Anaheim Ducks Head Coach After Losing 7th Straight Game

The Anaheim Ducks announced the firing of coach Randy Carlyle on Sunday amid the team's seven-game losing streak.

General manager Bob Murray will take over the coaching position on an interim basis.

"We thank Randy for everything he has done for the organization," said Murray. "Leading the team to a Stanley Cup and three conference final appearances, he has accomplished so much in Anaheim. Difficult decisions need to be made when times are tough, and our play has clearly been unacceptable. We have a tradition of success in Anaheim and we need to get back to that.
