The Winnipeg Jets announced today that Head Coach Paul Maurice has decided to resign from his position as Head Coach of the hockey club effectively immediately. His resignation has been accepted by the team. Dave Lowry has agreed to assume the head coaching duties on an interim basis. 

Maurice leaves the Jets bench as the second longest tenured coach in the National Hockey League, behind only Tampa Bay’s Jon Cooper. He also helped the Jets to every one of their Stanley Cup Playoffs appearances – first in 2015, a Western Conference Final berth in 2018, and another three consecutive postseason appearances after that.
