The Carolina Hurricanes are wasting no time finding a replacement for Ron Francis as the team's general manager, as the club reportedly interviewed Buffalo Sabres assistant GM Steve Greeley for the position, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

This comes less than a week after the Los Angeles Kings granted the Hurricanes permission to speak to their assistant GM, Mike Futa.

Francis was relieved of his GM duties last week, accepting a reassignment to become the team's president of hockey operations - ironically, a role in which he won't be making hockey-related decisions.

Greeley is in his first season in the Sabres' front office. He previously served as the New York Rangers' director of player personnel, the assistant coach at Boston University, and a scout for the Kings.

The Hurricanes' new GM will report directly to new owner Tom Dundon.
