Flames remove interim tag, announce Geoff Ward as head coach

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) The Calgary Flames have removed the "interim" tag from Geoff Ward's job and made him the NHL club's head coach.

Ward was promoted from associate coach Nov. 29. Bill Peters resigned amid allegations of racism when he coached in the minor leagues.

A .500 team at that time, the Flames rallied from the controversy to go 25-15-3 under Ward.
