Craig Berube has been named assistant coach of the Philadelphia Flyers.

Berube, the head coach of the Flyers' American Hockey League affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms, was promoted to replace John Stevens, who was named Flyers head coach. He joins Terry Murray as an assistant coach for the Flyers.

The Flyers also promoted Kjell Samuelsson to replace Berube as the fourth head coach in Phantoms history.

''Craig will be a good fit for John,'' said Holmgren in making the announcement. ''They have worked together the last couple of years with the Phantoms and they have a real good bond. Terry and Craig also have a good relationship, so I'm very happy that we're able to do that (promote Berube) and get those guys all together here tomorrow morning for practice.''

''We've also appointed Kjell Samuelsson the head coach of the Phantoms. I think that is a good move for Kjell, as well as a good move for the organization. Last summer, when John moved up to the Flyers, it was a very difficult decision to make between Kjell and Craig in terms of who was going to be the head coach. They are both very qualified coaches and good hockey guys.''
