Peters resigns as Hurricanes coach

The Carolina Hurricanes head coach Bill Peters has resigned position the team announced Friday.

He went 137-138-53 in four seasons in Raleigh, his first National Hockey League head coaching job.

If owner Tom Dundon does not want to pay up for one of the bigger name coaching candidates, like Dave Tippett, Alain Vigneault or Dan Bylsma, Brind'amour and Hurricanes' assistant GM/AHL coach Mike Vellucci could be the top two options to replace Peters.

"I'm leaving with no regrets", Peters said Friday.

Carolina is also without a general manager. I know for Hurricanes fans this can come as a shock and creates an uncertain future.

As those on the outskirts of the playoff picture and on the verge of either a retooled approach or full-on rebuild look ahead to 2018-19, we've got you covered with all the big coaching changes around hockey. The Hurricanes have not made the playoffs since 2009, a nine-season drought. This business requires hard work and long hours, and I greatly appreciate the efforts of the many people I have worked alongside during the past four years. "I feel like this is a good time to move on, and I am looking forward to my next challenge", he added.

Peters abruptly exited his final press conference following Carolina's 4-3 overtime win over Tampa Bay in the team's home finale on April 7, making a statement about the Humboldt Broncos bus accident tragedy before exiting the press room.
