The Boston Bruins have relieved Bruce Cassidy of his duties as head coach. Cassidy has served as head coach of the team since February 7, 2017.
“Today I informed Bruce Cassidy that I was making a head coaching change,” said Sweeney. “After 14 years working with Bruce, this was an extremely difficult decision. I want to thank and acknowledge Bruce for all his work and success with the Bruins organization. His head coaching record for the Bruins is impressive, and we are appreciative of Bruce both professionally and personally. After taking some time to fully digest everything, I felt that the direction of our team for both this season and beyond would benefit from a new voice. I want to wish Bruce, Julie, Shannon and Cole much success as a family and with their future opportunities.”
The move comes on the heels of the Bruins first-round exit to the Hurricanes in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
He owns a 245-108-46 record and has reached the playoffs all six of his seasons on the bench.
Don Sweeney made the wrong move
The move to part ways with Sweeney is strange considering it’s been weeks since the Bruins losing in the playoffs.
The Bruins dismissal of Cassidy feels like the wrong move. Sweeney has struggled to draft during his tenure as general manager. The removal of Cassidy is a piss poor decision on behalf of the Sweeney and Cam Neely regime.
