 LOS ANGELES (AP) -Terry Murray, who coached the Philadelphia Flyers to the Stanley Cup finals 11 years ago, has emerged as a leading candidate to succeed Marc Crawford as coach of the Los Angeles Kings.
Kings general manager Dean Lombardi said in a statement that no agreement was in place with Murray, but added: ``We have met with Terry on more than one occasion and we consider him to be a strong candidate for this position.''
Murray, who turns 58 on Sunday, has been an assistant coach with the Flyers since the 2003-04 season. Before that, he was the head coach of the Flyers, the Washington Capitals and the Florida Panthers. His teams have a 360-288-89 regular-season record and a 46-43 postseason mark. His last head coaching job was with Florida in the 2000-01 season.
Murray is not related to former Kings coach Andy Murray, but his brother, Bryan, was the coach and general manager for the Anaheim Ducks. Murray spent parts of eight seasons in the NHL and WHL as a defenseman and started his coaching career as an assistant with the Capitals in 1983.
The 47-year-old Crawford was fired June 10 after two years on the job, coaching the Kings to a 59-84-21 record. He had one year left on his contract. Los Angeles had 71 points last season, tied with Tampa Bay for the fewest in the NHL.
