Kirk Muller is expected to join the St. Louis Blues as an assistant coach.

A deal hasn't been finalized so the team hasn't made anything official yet, but Muller has reportedly agreed to join the team. He was fired as head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes about a week ago.

Kirk Muller wasn't shocked when the Carolina Hurricanes relieved him from his duties as head coach.

"It wasn't like we lost the night before and came in the next day and boom, you're gone," said Muller. "There was a three-week period of weighing what way it's going to go. I was prepared for it." He spent parts of three seasons as the Hurricanes' head coach and the team wasn't able to make the playoffs over that span. Muller feels he's learnt a lot from his experiences with the Hurricanes, but new GM Ron Francis wanted a fresh start.

Carolina Hurricanes assistant coach Rod Brind'Amour survived the team's coaching shakeup.

New Hurricanes GM Ron Francis fired head coach Kirk Muller as well as assistant coaches John MacLean and Dave Lewis while goaltending coach Greg Stefan will now serve as a pro scout instead. Brind'Amour and Francis are former teammates and Brind'Amour was the one who replaced Francis as team captain when the Hurricanes traded Francis in 2004. Brind'Amour might be a candidate for the head coaching gig, but he hasn't made his intentions known yet.

New Carolina GM Ron Francis will have to make decisions on three players in the very near future.

With Ron Francis now serving as the Hurricanes' general manager, Mike Vellucci has been added to the front office while Brian Tatum has been promoted.

Tatum will now serve as the team's assistant general manager. He will have a variety of tasks like dealing with CBA issues and scheduling. Vellucci will be an assistant general manager as well and also hold the title of director of hockey operations. Vellucci is a former player that participated in two NHL games before moving onto coaching. He was the head coach and GM of the OHL Plymouth Whalers for 14 seasons.

Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. suggested that injuries were to blame for Carolina's shortcomings more than coach Kirk Muller.

The Hurricanes lost their top two goaltenders for significant chunks of the season, although third string goalie Justin Peters was solid, so it wasn't as big a setback as one might initially think. All the same, Karmanos said "(Muller) has come a long way as a coach," but added that he won't be the one deciding who the Hurricanes coach will be next season.
Apr 29 - 9:45 AM

GM Jim Rutherford is expected to leave his post as General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday.

A press conference will take place on Monday and it's also expected that Ron Francis will take over as the new General Manager. Rutherford guided the Hurricanes for 20 seasons as he started in Hartford when the franchise was known as the Whalers. He won the Stanley Cup in 2006 but lately it has been a lot of lean years in Carolina as they have missed the playoffs in seven of the last eight seasons.

Kirk Muller's days as coach of the Carolina Hurricanes may be numbered.

Muller says he's waiting for word from Hurricanes management. Muller is 80-80-27 in three years with the Hurricanes. They've missed the playoffs in seven of the eight years since they won the Cup in 2006.

Carolina Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller thinks that the team is heading in the right direction.

The Hurricanes have missed the playoffs for the fifth straight season and from a points perspective, they're no better now than when they got eliminated back in 2010. "I know that's not easy to explain short of getting into all the details, but I think we've looked at some different areas we've improved on and I think we're in the right direction," Muller insisted. Either way, he might end up getting replaced over the summer.
Apr 10 - 9:06 AM

The Carolina Hurricanes have been eliminated from the playoffs.

This is the fourth time in a row that they won't be going to the postseason. There was a recent New York Post report suggesting that head coach Kirk Muller will be fired at the end of the season and that wouldn't be surprising given that he hasn't managed to lead them to the playoffs in the two-plus years he's been overseeing the team.
Apr 9 - 9:47 AM

A report in the New York Post says that sources state that Kirk Muller will be dismissed as coach of the Carolina Hurricanes at the end of the season.

Well, that's no big surprise as the Hurricanes have not made the post-season in any of the three seasons that Muller has been at the helm behind the bench. It may be more newsworthy if the Hurricanes decide to keep him as coach.
Apr 6 - 8:21 AM

Carolina Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford will reportedly give up his post following the 2013-14 campaign.

Rutherford, who is 65, might end up keeping his job as team president even if he resigns as general manager. Either way, Ron Francis is regarded as the likely candidate to take over as the team's GM. Rutherford guided Carolina to the Stanley Cup in 2006, Carolina has advanced to the playoffs just once since then.
Mar 25 - 9:29 AM

Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller vented to his players as the team slips out of the playoff race.

Muller feels that too many players are more concerned about how they looked on the scoresheet than they were about playing a team game. "You're a good group of guys but the culture is going to change," he said. "It takes work, it takes togetherness. We have a lot of fans who support you guys and care about you and we're not quitting. We're staying together. You better stay together." Regardless of whether or not they quit, the reality is that they will almost certainly fall short of the playoffs. They are nine points back with 14 games remaining in their schedule.
