The Florida Panthers have interviewed Ron Wilson for their vacant head coaching position.

Wilson, 59, coached four NHL teams over the last two decades, including the Anaheim Ducks, Washington Capitals, San Jose Sharks and Toronto Maple Leafs with a 648-561-101-91 record. He led the Capitals to the Stanley Cup Final in 1998.

Hired in 2008 by the Maple Leafs, he led the team to a 34-35-13 mark in his first season with the club finishing 12th in the Eastern Conference.

The following year, the team posted a 30-38-14 record and finished last in the Conference.

In 2010-11, Wilson's Leafs went 37-34-11 and finished 10th in the Conference. He was relieved of his duties from the team on Mar. 2, 2012.

The Panthers have also interviewed Tom Renney, Marc Crawford, Gerard Gallant and Bill Peters among others.
