The final coach in the history of the Atlanta Thrashers will not be the first coach of the new Winnipeg franchise.

Craig Ramsay was informed on Monday that he will not be retained by new general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff. Former Edmonton Oilers head coach Craig MacTavish, who interviewed for the position with Winnipeg, has also been told he will not be selected.

In Ramsay's only season behind the bench in Atlanta he compiled a 34-36-12 record as the Thrashers missed the playoffs.

Prior to that, Ramsay also spent single seasons behind the bench in Philadelphia where he lead the Flyers to the playoffs and in Buffalo where he was a mid-season replacement for Scotty Bowman.
