MIAMI (AP) -Jacques Martin is no longer the Florida Panthers' coach, but might return as their general manager.

Martin has filled both roles since the 2006-07 season.

A Panthers spokesman announced Friday that Martin will leave the bench after three years and was offered the chance to concentrate on front office duties.

Florida went 38-35-9 to finish with 85 points, nine behind Southeast Division champion Washington.

The Panthers haven't won a playoff series since 1996, a playoff game since 1997 and haven't reached the postseason since 2000.
