Bruins Fire Head Coach Claude Julien After 10 Seasons

Antonio JonesFeb 08, 2017

The team announced on Tuesday it had relieved Julien, 56, of his duties. Julien led the Bruins to a 26-23-6 record for 58 points through 55 games this season.

Julien is Boston's all-time coaching wins leader, compiling a 419-246-94 record and.614 winning percentage in 759 games with the club. He guided the team to a Stanley Cup championship in 2011, the Bruins' first title in 39 years. His 419 wins in nine seasons is the most wins in Bruins history.

Bruins center David Krejci said it was "shocking" when he and his teammates learned via text messages with general manager Don Sweeney that the Bruins parted ways with Julien.


Cassidy, 51, joined the Bruins as an assistant this season after spending the last five coaching the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League, going 207-128-45 and making the Calder Cup Playoffs in all five campaigns. McIntyre let in the last two, including William Nylander's game-winner with 1:36 left. He won the Jack Adams Trophy after the Bruins went 53-19-10 in the 2008-09 regular season, falling to the Carolina Hurricanes in seven games in the conference semifinals.

Prior to coaching the Devils, Julien served as the Montreal Canadiens head coach over three seasons.

The Bruins have fired their head coach. He was hired in October 2008 after the Blackhawks fired Denis Savard just five games into the regular season, and since then he has been arguably the league's most successful coach and has arguably been the best coach in Blackhawks history. However, Cassidy was sacked just 25 games into his second season.
