Senators News: John Paddock Fired

Derek HarmsworthSenior Writer IFebruary 27, 2008

The Ottawa Senators have fired head coach John Paddock.  He will be replaced by GM and former coach Bryan Murray.  Ottawa has been on a free fall of late, and with just 18 games to go before the post season, the Senators decided a change of direction was needed.

It is expected that Murray will coach the remainder of the year and the post season, and then look for a replacement this Summer.
