SAINT PAUL/MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Minnesota Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher today announced Head Coach Todd Richards has been relieved of his coaching duties effective immediately.
“I would like to thank Todd for the hard work he provided to the Minnesota Wild organization the last two seasons and wish him the best in the future,” said Fletcher.

“Just disappointed. Just disappointed in myself, that’s all,” he said. “I needed to do a better job—simple as that.”
As veteran Andrew Brunette said Monday, it’s amazing how fast it unraveled.
“Eight weeks ago we’re talking about Todd as ‘Coach of the Year,’” Brunette said. “Things happened so fast.”
