Must be more to this than just the BG incident and this perceived arrogance.

From the outside looking in, for a rookie coach Dunlap has done a relatively good job with what is obviously not a playoff ready team.

“Rich Cho and I conducted our season-ending review and met with Coach Dunlap to reflect on this season. 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.”

With Dunlap’s firing, the Bobcats will now have a coaching search for the second consecutive season. The Bobcats chose not to re-sign Paul Silas after his contract expired following a 7-59 season.

MJ is going to have to do one hell of a sales job to get a coach here who will be committed to Charlotte and to developing our players to their highest level. A coach who's been around a while. And who won't be another disappointment. Would either of the VGs come here?

(Bernie Bickerstaff, anybody.......)
