The Los Angeles Clippers are doing OK this season, but they’ve reportedly decided to make a coaching change.

According to ESPN, current coach and general manager Mike Dunleavy will be replaced by Kim Hughes on an interim basis.

Dunleavy will reportedly continue to act as the team’s GM.

According to NBA.com, “The 6′11″ Hughes, is a veteran of six seasons in the ABA and the NBA, beginning his career with the New York Nets of the ABA in 1975-76 where he was named to the All-Rookie First Team. Hughes signed with the Nuggets in 1978 and finished his NBA career in Cleveland in 1981.”

About time they fired him as HC, he's actually a good GM though. So good move by the Clippers.

While I agree he shouldn't be coaching Clippers, he did take a team to the WCF and was very close to going to the finals.

I wish I knew Bill Simmons. I'm sure they are partying up at the Simmon's household right now. I can't imagine how happy he is right now.

Im glad he is out as coach and glad he is still on as GM! I think we promoted the wrong guy though. Lucas should be interm coach.
