Los Angeles Lakers fired coach Mike Brown on Friday, November 9, 2012 after the Lakers lost four of its five games to start the NBA season, sports news sites reported that day.
Reports said that assistant coach Bernie Bickerstaff will take over as interim coach while the management searches for a new head coach.
“I have a deep appreciation for the coaches and players that I worked with this past year and I wish the organization nothing but success as they move forward,” Brown was quoted as saying by ABC News.
“This was a difficult and painful decision to make. Mike was very hard-working and dedicated, but we felt it was in the best interest of the team to make a change at this time. We appreciate Mike’s efforts and contributions and wish him and his family the best of luck,” Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak reportedly said during a news conference.
Reports said that Lakers might bring back Phil Jackson as their coach for the third time.
