Randy Carlyle has interviewed for the vacant Calgary Flames coaching position, Sportsnet reported Wednesday.

Flames president of hockey operations Brian Burke hired Carlyle as coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs when Burke was the Maple Leafs GM in 2012.

On Tuesday, TSN reported that Carlyle, 60, was expected to interview with the Anaheim Ducks for their coaching job.

The Flames and Ducks are the only two NHL teams with coaching vacancies. Calgary fired Bob Hartley as coach on May 3.

Carlyle has a 364-260-8 record in 10 seasons as an NHL coach with the Ducks and Maple Leafs. He coached Anaheim for seven seasons from 2005-11 and made the Stanley Cup Playoffs five times, including winning the Stanley Cup in 2007. He has the most wins in Ducks history (230) and ranks first on the franchise list for most regular-season games coached (434), playoff games coached (46) and playoff wins (27).

Carlyle was fired by the Ducks in November 2011 and replaced by Bruce Boudreau. Carlyle was hired by the Maple Leafs less than four months later and coached Toronto from 2011-15, making the playoffs once.
