Bobcats fire Dunlap after one season

The SportsXchange

Charlotte Bobcats head coach Mike Dunlap is out after one season with the team.

Dunlap finished his lone season in Charlotte at 21-61, the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference, one game ahead of the Orlando Magic.

"Rich Cho and I conducted our season-ending review and met with Coach Dunlap to reflect on this season," Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins said in a statement. "As an organization, it was decided that we needed to make a change with the head coach position. We want to thank Mike for his contribution and wish him the best in his future endeavors."

Dunlap replaced Paul Silias last summer after working as a St. John's assistant coach. The Bobcats went 7-59 in the strike-shortened 2011-12 season. The next coach will become the team's third in as many seasons.
