Paul Silas Replaces Brown in Charlotte

A few hours after announcing the departure of head coach Larry Brown, the Charlotte Bobcats have announced the hiring of Paul Silas as interim coach. NBA.com has more: “Charlotte Bobcats Chairman and CEO Michael Jordan today named Paul Silas interim head coach of the team, effective immediately. In 10 seasons as an NBA head coach, Silas has a career record of 355-400 with the Clippers (1980-83), Hornets (1999-2003) and Cavaliers (2003-05). He has also spent 11 seasons as an assistant coach for the Hornets, Knicks, Nets and Suns.”

    Hoot hoot! Paul Silas said coaching the Bobcats was his dream job after Sam Vincent was fired. Well Paul, dreams do come true. I am so excited about this.

    Interim coaches are generally pretty quick and easy decisions (no choice but to be quick). It will be interesting to see who lands this job for next season and beyond, already Pat Ewing and Mike Brown have been mentioned as replacements. Yahoo even mentioned that Charlse Oakley may be a potential candidate.

    I’ve been looking forward to Silas back in the coaching ranks. I think he’d be great for a young talented team. Now, the Cats need to blow up the team and get some young guns.
