Craig Ramsey Out In Tampa

via KMTR,

“Associate coach Craig Ramsay has been relieved of his coaching duties with the Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey Club,” executive vice president and general manager Jay Feaster said. “We thank Craig for his seven years of service to this franchise and for his hard work and dedication in helping us become Stanley Cup Champions.
“Head coach John Tortorella has begun the process of identifying and interviewing coaching candidates to serve as his top assistant. No timetable has been placed on filling the position.”

In a curious and unusual move that means John Tortorella will be the Tampa Bay Lightning’s coach for the foreseeable future, the NHL team essentially fired long-time associate coach Craig Ramsay today. Officially, Ramsay was “relieved of his duties” by general manager Jay Feaster. This was an extraordinary development for a lot of reasons, beginning with the fact that Ramsay was one of the NHL’s highest-paid assistants (hence, the “associate” coach designation).
