Charlotte Bobcats Head Coach Larry Brown Fired By Team Owner Michael Jordan

SportsIllustrated After a miserable start to the season in which he took shots at his players and himself, Larry Brown is out as coach of the Charlotte Bobcats in another messy exit in his well-traveled career.

Owner Michael Jordan announced the move in a release by the team on Wednesday, a day after the Bobcats were outscored 31-12 in the fourth quarter in their fourth straight loss. Continue Reading…

Charlotte Bobcats head coach Larry Brown has been fired or ‘asked to step down’, yet again. Brown has been fired from the Detroit Pistons, New York Knicks, and now the Charlotte Bobcats.

Michael Jordan 'asked' Larry Brown to step down as head coach.

Team owner Michael Jordan said “This was a difficult decision for both of us, but one that needed to be made.”

The Bobcats 9-19 record and one-sided losses were just too much for the NBA legend.

Larry Brown had lead the team to its first playoff appearance last season but the organization decided to trade away centerpieces Raymond Felton and Tyson Chandler.

That was obviously a bad decision.

The coach was not proud of his team’s performance this season saying “I just feel bad if anybody who really enjoys the game would watch our team play. They’d look at me and say, ‘That coach is not doing his job.’ That’s the thing I feel most bad about.”

Like Bill Parcells once said “They want you to cook the dinner; at least they ought to let you shop for some of the groceries.”

Larry Brown is the only coach ever to win a NCAA championship (Kansas 1988) and a NBA championship (Detroit Piston 2004).

He is also the only coach to lead as many as eight NBA teams to the playoffs and is a NBA Hall of Famer.
