New York Rangers Fire Two More Coaches

The New York Rangers have undergone significant changes in their coaching staff as part of a restructuring process.

Following the departure of head coach Gerard Gallant, the team announced the dismissal of assistant coaches Mike Kelly and Jim Midgley.

Kelly, who had a longstanding professional relationship with Gallant, and Midgley, who joined the Rangers after previous coaching positions, will not be returning.

However, assistant coach Gord Murphy will retain his position, at least until the new head coach makes a decision.

Gord Murphy, who has been with the Rangers since 2019, initially as an associate head coach for the Hartford Wolf Pack, will have his role determined by the incoming head coach.

Meanwhile, the organization has expressed its confidence in goaltending coach Benoît Allaire, who will continue in his position. The changes in the coaching staff come after a successful tenure under Gerard Gallant, where the Rangers achieved impressive point totals of 110 and 107 in consecutive seasons.

As the Rangers embark on a new era, with Chris Drury taking over as the general manager, the search for a new head coach is underway.

The new head coach will have the final say in selecting replacements for Kelly and Midgley, shaping the coaching staff for the future. These adjustments reflect the team's commitment to making improvements and building a strong foundation moving forward. Photo Credit: Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports
