A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Florida Panthers will not retain Tom Rowe as coach after this season.
Rowe will have the chance to stay with the organization in some capacity, said the person, who spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the Panthers have not publicly revealed details.
Rowe essentially gave up being general manager to take over as interim coach when the Panthers fired Gerard Gallant in November. Rowe had indicated he wanted to stay as coach.
Florida's final game is Sunday at Washington. The Panthers won the Atlantic Division last year, but missed the playoffs this year.
The next coach will be Florida's fifth in a span of less than four years, following Kevin Dineen, Peter Horachek, Gallant and Rowe.
