While one report suggested the Flyers have decided to fire Dave Hakstol and replace him with Joel Quenneville, two team sources confirmed to NBC Sports Philadelphia that no moves have been made.

According to Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post, the Flyers will fire Hakstol and hire Quenneville as their next head coach. The report stated the Flyers will announce the firing either Sunday night or Monday morning.

However, the Flyers have not made any official announcement. The team was flying back from Vancouver today following a 1-3-1 road trip. Also, according to a report by FOX Sports Midwest's Andy Strickland, Quenneville has not taken the job. A source confirmed Strickland's report to NBC Sports Philadelphia.

The Flyers' five-game road swing ended disastrously as the team lost four straight games, a stretch in which it allowed 22 goals. Overall, the Flyers are 12-15-4 with 28 points and in last place of the Metropolitan Division 31 games into a season with much greater expectations.

The Flyers are also allowing the second-most goals per game at 3.74 and have regressed in Year 4 under Hakstol, who was hired by Ron Hextall. Three weeks ago, Hextall was fired as general manager. One week later, the Flyers named Chuck Fletcher their new GM.

The Flyers play Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center against the Red Wings.

 

Stay tuned on who will actually be behind the bench.
