St. Louis Blues fire head coach Mike Yeo after rough start to season


ST. LOUIS- The St. Louis Blues are looking for a new coach after firing Mike Yeo Monday night after losing to the worst team in the NHL, the LA Kings.

Yeo was hired as an assistant coach under Ken Hitchcock in 2016. He took over as head coach in 2017 when Hitchcock was fired.

This year, the Blues are last in the Central Division with a record of 7-9-3. Overall, Yeo had a record of 73-49-11 with the Blues.

Associate Coach Craig Berube has been named interim head coach.

One interesting name hanging out there as a possible permanent replacement is former Blues and Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville. Coach Q won three Stanley Cups with Chicago before being fired two weeks ago. Quenneville started his NHL head coaching career with the Blues in 1996. He led the Blues to 7 playoff appearances in his 8 years in St. Louis.
