Larry Brown surprisingly resigned as coach of the Charlotte Bobcats this afternoon, so who could be the team’s next coach?  We give you four candidates:

  • Paul Silas – Career record: 355-400. Silas interviewed to be the Bobcats’ coach in 2007 but lost out to Sam Vincent.  He later said coaching the Bobcats would be a “dream job.”  Silas currently works for ESPN.
  • Mike Brown – Career record: 272-138.  Coach of the Year in 2008-09.  Guided the Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Finals in 2007 and the Eastern Conference Finals in 2008 and 2009.  Known to be a defensive specialist. 
  • Mike Woodson – Career record: 206-286. Woodson was not re-signed by the Atlanta Hawks after the team was swept in the first round by the Orlando Magic last season. 
  • Patrick Ewing – Career record: 0-0. The former New York Knicks superstar has been serving under Stan Van Gundy in Orlando and has developed a solid reputation while tutoring Dwight Howard. 

For what it’s worth, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski says that Silas is the favourite.
