Mike Keenan is suddenly in need of a job.

The legendary NHL bench boss, who has spent the past four seasons in the KHL, was dismissed by the Kunlun Red Star late Saturday.

The Red Star have won 11 of 37 games this season.

Keenan originally held both titles as general manager and head coach, but was relieved of his GM duties Tuesday. Keenan will remain with the team in an advisory role.

It was Keenan's first year with the Beijing-based team. He spent the past three campaigns with the KHL's Magnitogorsk Metallurg, with whom he won the league championship in 2014.

Keenan last coached in the NHL in 2009 with the Calgary Flames. The 1985 Jack Adams winner ranks ninth all-time with 672 NHL victories.
