Found April 29, 2014 on Fox Sports Florida:
The Florida Panthers have relieved interim head coach Peter Horachek of his duties, the team announced Tuesday. Horachek took over as interim coach on Nov. 8, 2013, after the team fired Kevin Dineen amidst a seven-game winless skid and a 3-9-4 start. He compiled a 26-36-4 record in his short time behind the bench as the Panthers finished 29-45-8 and missed the playoffs for the 12th time in the past 13 seasons. "Peter worked very diligently since taking over as interim head coach in November, but at this time we feel that a fresh approach and a new direction is needed behind our bench,"€ said Panthers vice president and team general manager Dale Tallon via a team press release. "We will immediately begin an extensive search for a new and experienced coach for our franchise, who will guide the Panthers to future success. We once again thank Peter for all of his hard work and service and wish him the best in his future endeavors."
