SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) Interim General Manager Joe Will today announced that the team has relieved Head Coach Bob Boughner, Assistant Coaches John Madden and John MacLean, and Assistant Coach, Video Dan Darrow of their responsibilities.

No replacements are being named at this time.

"As we progress through our search for the next general manager of the Sharks following 19 seasons under Doug Wilson's leadership, it has become apparent that the organization is in the process of an evolution," said Will. "The bottom line is we have missed the playoffs for the past three seasons, which isn't acceptable to our owner, our organization, or to our fans. As part of this evolution and evaluation, we felt it was in the best interest of the club to allow the next Sharks general manager to have full autonomy related to the make-up of the on-ice coaching staff moving ahead.

"I want to thank Bob, John, John and Dan for their dedication and commitment to the Sharks organization. The past two-plus seasons have been extremely challenging - on and off the ice - and Bob and his staff worked admirably under some very difficult circumstances. This change is not an indictment of their performance as much as it is a recognition of the complete organizational reset that we feel is in the best interest of the team at this point."
