The New Jersey Devils find themselves without a head coach for the third straight year and fourth time in the last five seasons.  Jacques Lemaire retired after the last game of this past season, leaving the Devils for the third time.  He had replaced John MacLean on December 23, 2010 to begin his third tenure as coach, which lasted 49 games.  This followed his second tenure which lasted the 82 games of the 2009-10 season.

The Devils coaching history, which is pretty lengthy is as follows:

Billy MacMillian: June 30, 1982 - November 22, 1983

Tommy McVie: November 22, 1983 - May 31, 1984

Doug Carpenter:  May 31, 1984 - January 26, 1988

Jim Schoenfeld:  January 26, 1988 - November 6, 1989

John Cunniff:  November 6, 1989 - March 4, 1991

Tommy McVie II: March 4, 1991 - June 5, 1992

Herb Brooks:  June 5, 1992 - May 31, 1993

Jacques Lemaire:  June 28, 1993 - May 8, 1998

Robbie Ftorek:  May 21, 1998 - March 23, 2000

Larry Robinson:  March 23, 2000 - January 28, 2002

Kevin Constantine:  January 28, 2002 - June 13, 2002

Lou Lamoriello II: April 2, 2007 - July 12, 2007

Brent Sutter:  July 12, 2007 - June 10, 2009

Jacques Lemaire II:  July 13, 2009 - April 26, 2010

John MacLean:  June 17, 2010 - December 23, 2010
