Craig Berube is fired with one year left on his contract after missing the playoffs. He was the coach in Philly for two seasons.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Flyers have fired head coach Craig Berube.

General manager Ron Hextall said this week he had not decided on Berube’s fate following a season in which the Flyers missed the playoffs. The Flyers announced the decision on Friday.

Berube went 75-58-28 (.553) with the Flyers and took them to the playoffs last season. He had one season left on his contract.

He spent six seasons as a Flyers assistant. He has spent 18 seasons with the organization as a player, assistant coach and head coach, doing all three with both the Flyers and Phantoms.

The Flyers went 42-27-10 under Berube last season and lost a seven-game playoff series to the New York Rangers. The Flyers players gave, at best, lukewarm reviews this week of Berube following a 33-31-18 (84 points) season.
