Who is the next coach to get fired? I always thought he’d be a perfect fit in Dallas before the Kidd hire.
2016 GMAT Blazers

Howard/Nene/
Griffin/M.Leonard/T.Jones
Porter/Marc.Morris/J.Johnson
McCollum/Stauskas/Thompson/Seldon

WTF? He wants to be a head coach but he exits when there's no more coaching vacancy in this league?

I guess when you're so damn old you have a very slow reaction to things.

Big loss for Brooklyn they ran his 7 seconds or less offense.

He was probably expecting the Bucks to be eliminated from the playoffs and replacing Budenholzer. :lol:

he was available for HC jobs while he was an assistant and was a finalist for the Blazers. Sounds like it was for another reason to me.

Maybe he wants to take a year to catch his breathe and take stock of the HC jobs that might become available next offseason. He's a good coach, he'll find another spot.

I was surprised he settled for an assistant position. Say what you will about his playoff coaching but in the regular season he will improve your offense and make it more exciting for fans. Someone out there will always hire him as HC.

I guess he’s going to stay without a team for a while in preparation to take the job of the first coach fired during the season
