Revolving door of Flyers coaches
Terry Murray, 1994-97 (212 games)
Murray played 39 games for the Flyers from 1975-77, tallying 13 assists. His Philly coaching career was a more illustrious three seasons in which he took the team to the playoffs all three years, including the Stanley Cup Finals in 1997.
Wayne Cashman, 1997-98 (61 games)
Cashman served a paltry 61 games on the Flyers' bench during the 1997-98 season before being replaced by Roger Neilson. That season, the Flyers fell short of a return to the Cup when they lost to the Sabres in the first round of the playoffs.
Roger Neilson, 1998-2000 (185 games)
Neilson led the Flyers to the playoffs in each of his three seasons as head coach. But during his medical leave of absence before the playoffs in 2000, Flyers GM Bobby Clarke decided to permanently replace Neilson with Craig Ramsay, a move that fans widely disapproved of.
Craig Ramsay, 2000 (53 games)
Ramsay had the misfortune of unceremoniously replacing Roger Nielson at the end of the 1999-2000 season. He led the Flyers to the Eastern Conference Finals that year, but the 2000-01 season had a rocky beginning, and Ramsay was fired just 28 games into the year.
Bill Barber, 2000-02 (136 games)
Barber played for the Flyers for 13 seasons, tallying 420 goals and 883 points and winning two Stanley Cups. As a coach, he won the Jack Adams award in 2001 but lasted just one and a half seasons before being fired in 2002.
Ken Hitchcock, 2002-06 (254 games)
Hitchcock was the longest-tenured Flyers head coach in a decade at the time of his firing. Like most coaches in recent memory, he led the team to the playoffs for three straight seasons, but was fired after a 1-6-1 start to the 2006-07 season.
John Stevens, 2006-09 (263 games)
Stevens' tenure in Philadelphia started with a rough end to the 06-07 season. However, the next season, Stevens willed the Flyers back to the second round of the playoffs. He was fired early in 2009 when his team with Stanley Cup hopes found itself in 10th place in December.
Peter Laviolette, 2009-13 (272 games)
Laviolette's tenure behind the Flyers' bench began with an improbable run to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2010. After that season, his teams took steps backwards every subsequent year, culminating in a poor start to the 2013 season and his firing just three games -- and losses -- into the year.
Craig Berube, 2013-Present (0 games)
Berube has served a pair of stints as head coach of the Flyers' AHL affiliate, the Phiadelphia Phantoms. He takes over for Peter Laviolette just three games into the 2013 season and has a messy situation to correct.
