Larry Brown Out As The Bobcats Coach

Larry Brown has a history of abandoning teams when times get rough. I’m not sure if this is what’s actually happening this time or if he’s been removed from his duties.

Michael Jordan made the following announcement today:

“I met with Coach Brown two weeks ago about the team’s performance and what we could do to improve it,” said Jordan. “We met again this morning after practice. The team has clearly not lived up to either of our expectations and we both agreed that a change was necessary.

“This was a difficult decision for both of us, but one that needed to be made. I want to thank Larry for everything he has done for our team. He has played a key role in this organization’s development, including coaching us to our first playoff appearance last season. Larry will continue to be a valuable advisor to me regarding the team. The search for a successor will begin immediately.”

The Bobcats have underperformed this season with a 9-19 record as the Eastern conference has improved around them. I wonder who Jordan will bring in. And NO, I do not believe Mike will take to the coaching reigns.  He’s far to intense for these new breed players. You see what happened with Kwame Brown and Jordan was just in management.
