Glen Gulutzan Relieved Of His Duties In Dallas

FRISCO, Texas - Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that head coach Glen Gulutzan and assistant coach Paul Jerrard have been relieved of their coaching duties, effective immediately.

"I would like to thank Glen Gulutzan and Paul Jerrard for the work they provided to the Dallas organization over the past four seasons," said Nill. "They are both quality coaches and men, but we have decided to go in a different direction with our coaching staff and we wish them well in their next endeavors."

Gulutzan, 41, was the 21st head coach in franchise history and led the club to a 42-35-5 record in 2011-12, and a mark of 22-22-4 in the shortened 2013 campaign.

Assistant coach Curt Fraser and goaltending coach Mike Valley will both be retained by the club moving forward.

That’s too bad.  Gulutzan rose too fast through the ranks.  He should’ve spent a little longer time with the AHL Stars.  He’s still a good coach and we LOVE him here in Vegas.

Too bad for Paul Jerrard.  I hope he gets a shot in the NHL somewhere else as an assistant.
