Toronto Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle received a two-year contract extension, the team announced Thursday.

Carlyle's job status had been in question since a late-season collapse by the Maple Leafs and the hiring of Brendan Shanahan as their new president. The Maple Leafs missed the playoffs after losing 12 of their final 14 games.

"In Randy we know we have a leader who has enjoyed a high level of success as both a player and a coach, including a Stanley Cup championship," general manager David Nonis said in a statement. "It was important that the positives Randy brings to our team were not overshadowed by a finish to the season that we all must take responsibility for."

Assistant coaches Dave Farrish, Scott Gordon and Greg Cronin will not be returning to the team.

"I appreciate the support of Brendan (Shanahan), Dave (Nonis) and the entire organization and am looking forward to working with them to get the Maple Leafs back into the playoffs," Carlyle said. "We have a strong foundation here and everyone wants to get back to work to deliver the results that we know this team is capable of."

Carlyle, 58, took over as coach of the Maple Leafs on March 2, 2012 after he was fired by the Anaheim Ducks earlier in the season.

The following season, he led Toronto back to the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time in nine years. The Maple Leafs rallied from a 3-1 deficit against the Boston Bruins in the first round only to lose the series in seven games, blowing a 4-1 lead in the third period of Game 7 and losing in overtime.

The Maple Leafs spent much of this season in a playoff position only to falter down the stretch, and finish 12th in the Eastern Conference with a 38-36-8 record.

Carlyle also spent parts of seven seasons coaching the Ducks, leading them to the franchise's only Stanley Cup title in 2007. His career record is 343-244-77.

Carlyle spent 17 seasons as an NHL defenseman with the Maple Leafs, Winnipeg Jets and Pittsburgh Penguins.
