Report: Mike Brown to Be Fired Soon

by May 18, 2010

Some in the media jumped the gun a little last week on the Brown firing, but everyone knows it’s only a matter of time until Mike is given the pink slip by the Cavs. The Plain Dealer has the latest: “Decision day hasn’t arrived yet but it appears everyone is preparing for it. The Cavaliers had not performed or scheduled exit interviews with players or coaches as of Monday. Once some or all of those take place, there will be a verdict on coach Mike Brown. But if that decision is a parting of ways, the sides are getting ready for it. According to sources, Brown and his coaching staff are preparing to be let go. Meanwhile, the front office and team owner Dan Gilbert are believed to be considering a list of possible replacements. While Gilbert said his evaluation period will last 7-10 days, it won’t likely last longer than that. According to multiple sources, there is a clause in Brown’s contract that changes his compensation for the remaining year of his contract if he’s let go more than 10 days after the season ends. All of the assistant coaches have a year left on their contracts as well.”
