The story is making the rounds that Terry Murray is about to be hired as Kings coach. Since I’m on vacation, I’m very much trying to chase this story, but a source within the Kings just indicated that Murray is a candidate but that there is no deal in place. I expect to have some sort of comment from Dean Lombardi, hopefully soon, but I think it’s safe to say you can read between the lines on this one. Unless something falls through in negotiations, it looks like another Murray (unrelated) in charge of the Kings.
I was told, my a source, to look at people whose past intertwined with Lombardi’s, either in San Jose or Philadelphia. Murray was an assistant coach for the Flyers when Lombardi worked for them as a scout.
