Last week, the Stars fired bench boss Glen Gulutzan, and GM Jim Nill told TFP's David Pagnotta and Michael Grossi during "The Fourth Period LIVE" on NHL Network Radio on Saturday that his search for a replacement will commence this week.
Stars assistant coach Curt Fraser and Texas Stars (AHL) head coach Willie Desjardins are expected to be interviewed for the opening in Dallas.
CBC's Elliotte Friedman suggests in his "30 Thoughts" column that Grand Rapids Griffins (AHL) head coach Jeff Blashill and Montreal Canadiens assistant coach Gerard Gallant could also be interviewed for the job.
With today's news out of Vancouver that the Canucks have fired coach Alain Vigneault, he could soon receive a call from Nill about their vacancy.
Toronto Marlies (AHL) head coach Dallas Eakins is also expected to attract interest from Nill and the Stars.
It's believed the Stars would like to have a new head coach named before the June 30 NHL Draft.
