Lindy Ruff is out as head coach of the Buffalo Sabres.
The team announced it is parting ways with the league's longest-tenured coach. The move comes after a 2-1 loss to Winnipeg yesterday that has the Sabres last in the Northeast Division at 6-10-and-1.
Ruff had been head coach of the Sabres since the 1997-98 season. He was the second-longest tenured head coach in all of North American pro sports, behind Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs.
