The Montreal Canadiens have fired head coach Claude Julien and associate coach Kirk Muller.
The news was announced on February 24 by Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin.
The Canadiens have promoted Dominique Ducharme as interim head coach and Alex Burrows has joined the coaching staff.
In Dominique Ducharme, we see a very promising coach who will bring new life and new energy to our group. We feel that our team can achieve high standards and the time had come for a change, Marc Bergevin.
The 47-year-old has been an assistant head coach with the team for the last two seasons.
