David Quinn has been fired as Rangers head coach, according to the New York Post’s Larry Brooks.

The move comes a week after the team dismissed general manager Jeff Gorton and team president John Davidson. Chris Drury, who had been serving as associate GM, has taken over both roles.

Quinn’s assistants, Greg Brown, Jacques Martin, and David Oliver, have also been axed, per Brooks. Only goaltending coach Benoit Allaire will remain.

In three seasons in New York, Quinn compiled a 96-87-25 record with the only postseason berth coming via last summer’s Stanley Cup Qualifiers. The Rangers were quickly swept 3-0 by the Hurricanes. Prior to being hired by the NHL side he spent five seasons as head coach of his alma mater, Boston University.
