UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -Ted Nolan's brief run as coach of the New York Islanders has ended. He and general manager Garth Snow decided he should not return for a third season behind the bench.
The Islanders scheduled an afternoon news conference Monday. Snow will begin an immediate search for Nolan's replacement.
There had been a growing rift between Nolan and Snow throughout last season when the Islanders failed to make the playoffs. Snow said he felt the team was underachieving while Nolan countered that he lacked adequate personnel.
