Bobcats fire Dunlap

Wed., April 24, 2013

Mike Dunlap is one and done with the Charlotte Bobcats. The Bobcats said Tuesday they’ve fired Dunlap as coach after a single season. The Bobcats went 21-61 under Dunlap, finishing with the second-worst record in the NBA. Charlotte won just seven games in the strike-shortened 2011-12 season, but tripling last year’s victory total and a three-game winning streak to close the season weren’t enough to save Dunlap’s job. Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins said a search for a replacement will begin immediately. The move means the Bobcats will have a third head coach in as many seasons. Dunlap was hired last June after working as an assistant coach at St. John’s, the first person to make a direct move from college assistant to head coach in the NBA. – AP
