Sabres clean house by firing GM Murray and coach Bylsma

The architect of the Buffalo Sabres' current roster and the coach he picked two seasons ago are out, as announced Thursday morning by the franchise.

The Buffalo Sabres have cleaned house, firing head coach Dan Bylsma and general manager Tim Murray. "Want to thank Tim and Dan for their hard work and efforts they have put in during their tenures with the club".

Murray was hired in 2014 to execute a rebuilding plan, the centrepiece of which was ensuring Buffalo would have the best possible chance of drafting phenom Connor McDavid in 2015. “We wish them luck.

After missing the playoffs again, the Buffalo Sabres are making major changes in their organization.

The next head coach of the Sabres will be the fifth since Pegula bought the team in 2011.


Bylsma was behind the bench for the last two seasons.

He also oversaw the Rochester Americans, Buffalo's minor league affiliate.

Speaking of Eichel, this news comes down just a day removed from a heavily reported rumor that the young 20-year-old would not re-sign with the team if Bylsma was still the coach come next season.

The Sabres now begin the search for Bylsma's and Murray's replacements.

Pegula will address the media on Friday at 10 a.m. and says the team has begun the process to fill these positions immediately.
