Minneapolis, MN, United States (NewsBahn) - The Minnesota Wild dismissed coach Mike Yeo and named John Torchetti interim replacement according to reports late Saturday.

The Wild are 0-5-3 in the past eight home games for the longest winless stretch at Xcel Energy Center since 2001, likely costing Yeo his job.

Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher previously told reporters Yeo wouldn't be fired.

"I knew what he said the other day, and I'm a realist," Yeo said to the media regarding Fletcher's comments. "You can't lose every game and expect to think that there's not going to be changes. I'm operating under the assumption that I'm going to be the coach tomorrow, and I know what I'm going to do, and it's going to be something different from what we've done."

The status of assistants Rick Wilson, Darryl Sydor , Darby Hendrickson and Andrew Brunette along with Bob Mason, goaltending coach, is uncertain.
