Tonawanda News — New Buffalo Sabres general manager Tim Murray suggested in a radio interview Friday that Ted Nolan may soon have the 'interim' tag removed from his job title.

Murray made the suggestion about the Sabres' current interim head coach while speaking on the Canadian radio program "Hockey Central," heard in Toronto on 590 AM.

Among Murray's remarks to hosts Daren Millard and Doug MacLean: "No, he doesn't have to audition. He's our coach. We may talk to him shortly about his future. Right now, I'm happy with Teddy."

Nolan was hired on an interim basis to replace Ron Rolston, who was ousted along with longtime general manager Darcy Regier in November. The Sabres have gone 8-11-4 under Nolan after starting the season at 4-15-1.

The Sabres are in Washington on Sunday to face the Capitals.
