Former Head Coach of the Los Angeles Kings
Terry Murray Speaker Profile
Terry Murray was born July 20, 1950 in Shawville, Quebec and is a retired Canadian hockey player, and current head coach of the NHL's Los Angeles Kings. He is the brother of current Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray.
Murray, one of ten children of Clarence and Rhoda Murray, was born and raised in the Ottawa Valley town of Shawville, Quebec, near Ottawa. He played hockey growing up.
After a brief coaching stint as head coach of the Cincinnati Cyclones in the IHL, Murray became head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers, where he put together the "Legion of Doom" line consisting of Eric Lindros, John LeClair, and Mikael Renberg. In three seasons as head coach of the Flyers (1994-95 through 1996-97), Murray compiled a 118-64-30 record and coached the team to two Atlantic Division Championships (1994-95 and 1995-96) and to the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals as the Eastern Conference Champion. After beating three teams easily with 4-1 series wins, the Flyers were upset by the Detroit Red Wings in four games. Despite this accomplishment, Murray was fired after the end of the 1997 playoffs. One website had described Terry's shuffling of goaltenders Ron Hextall and Garth Snow to be unprofessional, and he had described the 6-1 loss in Game 3 as a choking situation during a closed-door meeting with his players, which angered them since it "exposed and pulverized" the "fragility of the team's confidence". Murray served as a pro scout for the Flyers during the 1997-98 season.
During the 1998-99 season, Murray assumed the Panthers' head coaching position from his brother, Bryan, the interim Panthers' coach, after Doug MacLean was fired. In 1999-2000, Murray led the Panthers to a franchise record 98-point season, team-record 43 victories and into the first round of the playoffs. He was replaced by Duane Sutter at the Panthers' helm in the fall of 2000.
Murray served as a pro scout for the Philadelphia Flyers over parts of three seasons (2000-01 to 2002-03), and joined the coaching staff as Assistant Coach from 2004-2008.
On July 17, 2008, Murray was hired as the coach of the Los Angeles Kings.
