Montreal Canadiens Fire Assistant Coaches Randy Cunneyworth, Randy Ladouceur

The Montreal Canadiens hired Michel Therrien as their new head coach on Tuesday, and that was just the first step in trying to move on from the Randy Cunneyworth era. On Wednesday, the word came down from the team itself that Cunneyworth and Randy Ladoucer were both "relieved of their duties" as assistant coaches, so that step seems to have come quickly.

SB Nation's Travis Hughes called Cunneyworth's removal as head coach in May "a move that literally everybody could have seen coming"; his tenure as the Canadiens' head coach lasted just 50 games, in which Montreal compiled an 18-23-9 record. But the team retained him as an assistant, and indicated that the future head coach would decide whether Cunneyworth -- and, likely, Ladoucer -- would stay on with a new staff.

It would seem that Therrien has made that decision.
