The Leafs are currently riding a six-game losing streak, and are just 1-9-1 in their last eleven games. At one point, they were in a playoff spot, but they've now slipped five points out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference.
The Leafs crowd got hostile recently with the now former Leafs head coach, going as far as to voice their opinions with "Fire Wilson" chants.
After a short time of speculation, it has been confirmed that Randy Carlyle will be stepping in for Wilson as the Maple Leafs' new head coach.
It's not a secret that Leafs general manager Brian Burke is a fan of people he's worked with in the past, and together, Burke and Carlyle won a Stanley Cup in Anaheim in 2007.
More news will be reported as it comes available.
