Mike Brown Not Bitter Toward Cavs

by October 30, 2010

While the former NBA Coach of the Year is waiting for a job in the League again, he’s coaching his son’s junior high football team. And he tells Yahoo!‘s Marc Spears there’s no love lost between him and the Cavs: “While Brown hadn’t talked publicly about his firing until this week, he said he isn’t bitter toward the Cavs. ‘I understand the business,’ Brown said. ‘[Cavaliers owner] Dan Gilbert took a chance on me five years ago with little coaching experience and not being a former player. That opportunity doesn’t happen a lot. It was his team. He had to do what he thought was best for the organization. What I would have preferred is for me and [James] to get after it one more year. I thought we were close. At the end of the day, it’s a business and that was a change they were entitled to make.'”
