Gerard Gallant being hired as New York Rangers head coach, according to reports

The New York Rangers are hiring Gerard Gallant as the team’s head coach, according to multiple reports Monday.

It’s the second major decision for newly appointed general manager Chris Drury, who replaced general manager Jeff Gorton and president John Davidson after the organization surprisingly turned over the previous front-office regime at the conclusion of the regular season.

The first choice for Drury came last month when he chose to fire David Quinn, the former Boston University coach who lasted three seasons in New York, and his three assistants.

The New York Post first reported the news of Gallant's hiring.
