Detroit Pistons Finally Fire coach John Kuester

The head coach’s firing was a long time in the making. ESPN has more: “The Detroit Pistons fired coach John Kuester on Sunday, four days after Tom Gores completed an agreement to purchase the team from Karen Davidson. Kuester was 57-107 over two years with Detroit, which failed to make the postseason in consecutive seasons for the first time since missing it three straight times from 1993-95. This past season was a dreary one, with the proud franchise making more news for internal squabbling than any on-court accomplishments. ‘Decisions like this are difficult to make,’ team president Joe Dumars said. ‘I want to thank John for his hard work and dedication to the organization over the last two years, however, at this time we have decided to make a change.’”

    The buzz over on CNNSI.com is that the Pistons are considering Isiah Thomas for coach(among others). If the consideration is anything more than a courtesy to Isiah, then the entire Pistons organization might as well just douse themselves in gasoline and flick the Bic.
