Hanlon, in his fourth season at the helm, was told of the decision a day after loud boos and chants of ``Fire Hanlon!'' echoed through the arena during a 5-1 home loss to the Atlanta Thrashers, Washington's fifth consecutive defeat.
He will be replaced on an interim basis by Bruce Boudreau, the coach of the Hershey Bears, Washington's American Hockey League affiliate.
