Nolan previously coached the Sabres from 1995-97; he won the Jack Adams Award as coach of the year in 1997 after leading the Sabres to a 40-30-12 record, but was fired after that season. He had been coaching Latvia's national team since 2011, including the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Following his first stint with Buffalo, Nolan coached the New York Islanders from 2006-08 where he compiled a 74-68-21 record. The Islanders did not make the playoffs during Nolan's tenure.
As an NHL player, Nolan played parts of three seasons with the Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins from 1981-85.

His AHL career spanned from 1979-1986.
