Weight loses interim status, becomes coach of Islanders

NEW YORK (AP) Doug Weight said he hadn't thought about whether he wanted to return as coach of the New York Islanders while the season was winding down, but hoped to make a quick decision.

It took him just two days.

The Islanders announced Wednesday that Weight, promoted from assistant coach to interim head coach in January, was a permanent hire.
