Terry Murray, who was dismissed last month as coach of the Philadelphia Flyers, will remain with the club in the pro scouting department, general manager Bob Clarke said.
Murray was fired on June 13, six days after the Flyers lost their fourth straight game to the Detroit Red Wings in the Stanley Cup finals. Wayne Cashman was hired to replace him on July 7.
Clarke said Murray would work with Paul Holmgren, the club's director of pro scouting. Holmgren, also a former Flyers head coach, and Murray will be responsible for evaluating NHL players the Flyers might be interested in acquiring through trades or free agency.
Murray was not available for comment. Clarke said he was delighted that his former Flyers teammate, 118-64-3 in three regular seasons as head coach, was staying.
