Default Steve Clifford to be new Bobcats coach

Michael Jordan felt he needed a head coach with a little more NBA experience this time around to improve his struggling Charlotte Bobcats.

The former NBA superstar and current owner believes he's found one in Steve Clifford.

Clifford, a long-time NBA assistant, has been hired away from the Los Angeles Lakers by the Bobcats before the Milwaukee Bucks could make a play for him.

The decision comes after Jordan's experiment with former St. John's assistant Mike Dunlap failed miserably this past season. Jordan fired Dunlap in April after one season with a 21-61 record.

Two people familiar with the situation said Monday that Clifford had agreed to a three-year contact. They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the announcement has not been made public.

"He's a brilliant basketball coach who relates to all kinds of people well and I think he will do an absolutely fantastic job with the talent at hand," Jeff Van Gundy said. "I'm so happy for one of the good guys in the league to get this opportunity."

The Van Gundy's seemed to like him and he might bring in Patrick Ewing as an assistant so right now it looks like a more predictable hire than Dunlap. That being said, who in there right mind would want this job?

Van Gundy brothers compared him to Tom Thibodeau, so can't be too bad! Hopefully he can be a mainstay with this franchise unlike our previous coaches.

A guy who's spent a decade as an assistant and wants a head coaching job. I'm sure there'd be plenty of guys around the league who'd love to even be interviewed for a job like this.
