The Florida Panthers have relieved Tom Rowe of his GM duties and will no longer serve as the club's interim head coach.
Panthers President of Hockey Operations Dale Tallon will retain his title and return as the club's GM.
"I am confident that we have the necessary talent throughout our organization to win the Stanley Cup," Panthers Chairman & Governor Vincent Viola said. "Dale will continue to be our principle leader as we pursue this single goal."
Rowe, 60, will remain with the organization as Special Advisor to Tallon, who will immediately begin the search for the club's next head coach.
"We have the talent to get back on track in a hurry," Tallon said. "This was a difficult year for us, but I think we learned some tough lessons about what it takes to win consistently in the NHL. With a few tweaks to our roster and the right leadership, I'm confident we can get back to contending for the Stanley Cup next season."
Tallon previously served as the Panthers' GM from May 2010 through to May 2016.
