Renney Out As Head Coach 

Post#1 » by Nolan » Fri May 18, 2012 1:36 am

EDMONTON -- Wanting more wins out of their young talent, the Edmonton Oilers won't renew the contract of head coach Tom Renney after two seasons in the NHL's cellar.

"We're entering a new phase of our hockey club," general manager Steve Tambellini said Thursday.

Renney joined the team for the 2010-11 season and finished with an NHL-worst 25-45-12 record. The team improved marginally this season with a 32-40-10 record for second-last in the league.

Can't say i'm really happy about this. I was a big Renney fan, he's done a great job of bringing along the youngsters and I think he did the best he could do with the group of players he had.
