PITTSBURGH – David Morehouse, CEO of the Penguins organization, announced Friday morning the firing of general manager Ray Shero.

Initial reports of Bylsma’s firing posted by TSN were incorrect. However Morehouse said the new general manager will determine the future of the entire coaching staff.

Shero was hired as GM in 2006 and built the Pens into the team which made consecutive Stanley Cup appearances in 2008 and 2009, winning the cup in ’09.

Assistant GM Jason Botterill will serve as interim GM until a replacement is found. Botterill is a candidate for the job.
