Dallas Stars coach Glen Gulutzan has been fired. Gulutzan couldn’t end the longest playoff drought in franchise history for the Dallas Stars.
When the general manager who hired him was dumped two weeks ago, Gulutzan’s firing looked like the inevitable next step in an overhaul of the staff and it came Tuesday in an announcement from new general manager Jim Nill. He nevertheless said the move wasn’t a foregone conclusion in his mind.
“That’s why this process took so long,” Nill said. “I needed to do my homework. I needed to get to know everybody. It’s tough when you come into a new situation. I wanted to be fair to everyone.”
