VIDEO: Ducks Place Murray On Administrative Leave
By Michael Walters
The Anaheim Ducks announced today that General Manager Bob Murray was placed on administrative leave.
Official Statement From The Organization:
“We recently became aware of accusations of improper professional conduct against Bob Murray. After internal review, we enlisted Sheppard Mullin to perform an independent investigation. Upon recommendation from their initial findings, we have decided to place Bob on administrative leave pending final results. In the interim, Vice President of Hockey Operations and Assistant General Manager Jeff Solomon will assume the role of Interim General Manager. We will have no further comment until the investigation is complete.”
The organization did not provide any more specifics and is going wait until the investigation is done as it is still ongoing. For more on Solomon visit: Jeff Solomon Joins The Ducks
According to TSN’s Daren Dreger, “It sounds like, according to source, that the allegations are based on how Bob Murray, GM of the Anaheim Ducks, dealt with coaches, staff members, the threatening of job security, allegations of aberration, that type of behavior.”

Daily Faceoff’s Frank Seravelli had a couple of sources weigh in on the situation:
“Working for Bob Murray was pure daily mental warfare,” one source said. “The abuse was endless. Crazy text messages to players and staff berating them for their performance and threats of job security happened with regularity. These weren’t one-time slip-ups or mistakes. These were regular explosions and eruptions.”
Another source said: “There’s not just one skeleton in the closet here with ‘Murph,’” as Murray is known by his nickname around the NHL. “The list of people who have felt his wrath first-hand over the years is long.”
According to the OC Register’s Elliott Teaford, a decision on the future of Murray could be made within the next few days.
As more information becomes available this story will be updated.
