Today the Anaheim Ducks relieved head coach Randy Carlyle of his duties. The team owners, Henry and Susan Samueli, emailed the following letter to the Orange Alliance Members.

To Our Valued Orange Alliance Members: 

Today is a difficult day for our franchise. Randy is a dedicated, passionate man that we respect immensely. During his two stints as our head coach, he became the winningest coach in club history, took us to the Conference Finals three times, and of course, won a Stanley Cup. We thank him deeply.  

This has been a surprisingly difficult season. We supported Bob Murray’s previous decision to allow the players and staff to battle out of this situation. While no one person should take the blame for our current predicament, recent results dictated that Bob needed to make this move.

We are a proud organization with a great winning tradition. Our current performance is very disappointing and therefore we have given Bob permission to do whatever is necessary to get us back to our winning ways. By placing Bob behind the bench for the remainder of the season, he will gain unique insights into the team which will enable him to best determine the changes that need to be made. Changes are always difficult but you can rest assured that ownership and management will do a thorough and thoughtful assessment of our team and make decisions that are in the best interests of the team for both the near term and long term. We are confident that we can turn this around quickly.

We are grateful and thankful for the support and dedication that our fans have provided over the years and we ask for your patience and support as we navigate through the remainder of the season.

Go Ducks!

Henry and Susan Samueli
