The Dallas Stars on Tuesday dismissed second-year head coach Jim Montgomery due to "unprofessional conduct irregular with the core values and beliefs of the Dallas Stars and the National Hockey League."

Stars general supervisor Jim Nill stated he ended up being mindful Sunday of an act by Montgomery and that the decision to ease the coach of his tasks followed an internal investigation that consisted of conversations with the team's general counsel. While not going into detail, Nill said it was not a criminal act, and had no connection to present or past gamers.

Nill said he informed Montgomery of his firing on Tuesday morning and would not reveal anything else about their discussion.
"He's dissatisfied. We're dissatisfied," said Nill, who employed Montgomery in May 2018. "A really hard decision. I have got a lot of respect for Jim Montgomery. He's a great coach. And sadly, you know, in some cases in life, the hardest decisions are the most difficult. And this is among them."

Montgomery did not immediately react to a text message seeking comment.

Assistant coach Rick Bowness, who was brought aboard a month after Montgomery's hiring, has actually been named interim coach.

'Everyone marvels'

"The Dallas Stars expect all of our workers to act with integrity and display professional behaviour while working for and representing our company," Nill stated in a news release.
