One of my favorite coaches in League history, if only for his fiery press conferences and stubborn insistence on running the same play over and over and over, has been fired. According to Yahoo!!!!!!!!!!!! Sports, the Toronto Raptors have ended the Sam Mitchell era following last night’s 39-point demolition at the hands of the Denver Nuggets. Former Canadian National Team coach and current Raptors assistant Jay Triano will assume head coaching duties.
