RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) -

The Carolina Hurricanes head coach Bill Peters has resigned position  the team announced Friday. 

"I have a lot of respect for Bill as a person and coach," said Owner/CEO/Governor Tom Dundon. "We thank him for his time with the Hurricanes and wish him success in whatever comes next."

Peters had a career record of 137-138-53 in his four seasons behind the Hurricanes bench.

He had served as head coach since June 19, 2014. 

"I want to thank Tom Dundon, Peter Karmanos and Ron Francis for the trust they put in me to lead the team," said Peters. "I feel the incoming general manager should have the ability to hire his own head coach."

He had one season left on the contract extension he signed in 2016.

The Canes missed the playoffs all four years Peters was head coach.
