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.
