The Anaheim Ducks have fired head coach Randy Carlyle, the club announced Sunday.

General manager Bob Murray will take over the bench for the remainder of the 2018-19 campaign, the team announced, before the organization begins its search for a new head coach in the off-season.

a€œWe thank Randy for everything he has done for the organization. Leading the team to a Stanley Cup and three conference final appearances, he has accomplished so much in Anaheim,a€ Murray said via a team release. a€œDifficult decisions need to be made when times are tough, and our play has clearly been unacceptable. We have a tradition of success in Anaheim and we need to get back to that.a€

The Ducks find themselves mired in the Western Conference basement, sitting with 21-26-9 record in what has been an abysmal 2018-19 campaign. The club is in the midst of a particularly woeful stretch, having won just twice in their past 21 games.
