Joel Quenneville out as head coach of the Florida Panthers

Breaking news tonight.

After his meeting with Gary Bettman, Joel Quenneville has resigned as head coach of the Florida Panthers. This according to ESPN’s Kevin Weekes.

Andrew Brunette will take over as the interim head coach.

It is unclear at this time who will take his place permanently behind the bench, but John Tortorella is said to be a candidate.

This of course stems from the report that was released following an investigation into the Chicago Blackhawks organizations role in covering up sexual abuse.
