"Based on his experience as a player and coach, we think Phil is uniquely qualified to be our head coach and to help us achieve our organizational goals", Sabres General Manager Jason Botterill said.

Nashville advanced to the Stanley Cup Final this year but lost to the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins by a best-of-seven score of 4-2. He ranks fifth in franchise history with 558 points in 608 games and holds every single-season record for defensemen. He is also the Sabres' career and individual-season leader in goals, assists and points by a defenseman. In 1983, he was part of the First All-Rookie Team.
Housley is the 18 coach in franchise history. With a rebuild still under way in Buffalo, the Sabres will now have to decide which direction they're heading in with decisions to make on players such as Evander Kane.
Rather than focus on his now-former players in Nashville, Housley turned his attention to Sabres defensemen, including up-and-coming stars Rasmus Ristolainen and Jake McCabe.
It appears the Buffalo Sabres are close to hiring Dan Bylsma's replacement behind the bench.
