    But now the problem is...John Loyer remains until the end of the season? I dont know this new coach

    ps Jennings for me is not the suitable point guard for this team

    Is John Loyer the coach that looks like Conan O'Brien?

    This could be good karma then with the Tonight Show changing hands.

    A new coach means Joe is safe. An interim means
    he's on the line this summer

    I'm surprised no ones mentioned Bill Laimbeer as a replacement yet. He'd get my vote!

    Isn't Joe's contract up after this season? They may just quietly let him go rather than make noise by firing someone with long history in the city.

    That doesn't have a chance of happening unless Dumars is gone

    I think it was mentioned by LA Dre. Laimbeer, Jackson or Hollins.

    At least Gores has the sense to recognize and eliminate a bad investment.

    If they don't hire a replacement coach now, that, to me, is the writing on the wall that Dumars is gone after the season. Otherwise, if you're trying to make the leap into the playoffs, you get a coach with the chops to do it.

    Is it too early for a Joe Dumars FIRED thread? Or would that just freak posters out too much?

    Don't need a new one. One's already been created, just keeping it warm for when or if it happens.

    This isn't a strong statement by the organization. They went with the go go home the first girl who says yes method last time now they're doing an about face 6 months later.

    Why would anyone of any competence want to work there, so they can get trampled by the juggling bears and elephants?

    Wings coach Mike Babcock may want to start looking over his shoulder....Leyland, Schwartz, Cheeks.....he maybe the next one to go in the Detroit Pro Sports coaches merry go round.

    Gores should do it now. No sense keeping a lameduck GM around the players.

    Well this was unsurprising.

    Bad decision to fire a coach midway through the season aside, this is a good move.
