The official announcement was made after the 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins at the Xcel Energy Center Saturday. After a strong start to the season, the Wild had lost 13 of their last 14 games. John Torchetti will serve as the interim coach.

Yeo had been on the job since 2011 and his teams never made it past the second round of the NHL Western Conference playoffs.
