Philadelphia Flyers interim head coach Mike Yeo won’t return to the position next season, general manager Chuck Fletcher announced Tuesday, according to NHL.com’s Adam Kimelman.

Yeo entered the season as one of Philadelphia’s assistant coaches but was temporarily promoted in December after Alain Vigneault was fired. Yeo was unable to get the Flyers on track, posting a 17-36-7 record after taking over behind the bench.

The 48-year-old previously held head coaching positions with the Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues.

The Flyers’ next head coach will be their seventh since 2010.

The Detroit Red Wings and Winnipeg Jets are also in search of a new bench boss this offseason after missing the playoffs.
