RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -The Atlanta Thrashers have called off their coaching search for now.
General manager Don Waddell said Friday that the Thrashers wouldn't hire any outside coaching candidates this season. He fired Bob Hartley last month, took over himself and led Atlanta to a 9-4 record.
``We're keeping it internal, we're not going to bring an external candidate in,'' Waddell said after the Thrashers' 3-0 victory over Carolina. ``We like the way things are going right now, so why change when things are going well?''
Waddell declined to say if he would remain as interim coach through the season, meaning it's possible that assistant coach Brad McCrimmon could be promoted.
