DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Stars have agreed to hire Glen Gulutzan as their next coach.

A person with knowledge of the talks tells The Associated Press that the deal is pending contract details being worked out. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the club had not announced the hiring.

Gulutzan has coached the club's top minor-league affiliate the last two seasons, reaching the finals in 2010 and the playoffs again this past season.

The Stars also interviewed Ken Hitchcock, the coach of their 1999 Stanley Cup champion club; Montreal assistant Kirk Muller, who was on the 2000 Dallas team that went to the Cup finals; and Nashville assistant coach Peter Horachek.
