Raptors Official: Triano's option will not be exercised

Quote:
Toronto Raptors President and General Manager Bryan Colangelo announced Wednesday the club will not exercise its option on head coach Jay Triano for the 2011-12 season. Triano will be retained as a consultant to the basketball team as a special assistant to the president and general manager.

The search for a new head coach will commence immediately. There is no definitive timetable for the completion of the search process.

“I have great respect for Jay Triano both as a person and as a basketball mind,” said Colangelo. “Jay deserves tremendous credit for developing our young players this past season and our most recent win-loss record does not appropriately reflect his many positive contributions to this organization.

“This was a difficult decision to make, but after almost three full seasons of observation and evaluation I believe that bringing in a new voice as head coach will accelerate the progress we are looking to make in the coming years.

“I am very pleased that Jay has agreed to stay on and help see through the plan that we have designed and initiated together.”

“I am grateful to the organization for the opportunity to be a head coach in the NBA,” said Triano. “I am proud of the work that I and the coaching staff have done with our young players and feel confident we have laid the foundation for a team that will continue to improve. I look forward in assisting Bryan to deliver a championship team to Toronto.”

Triano was promoted to head coach and signed to a three-year contract May 11, 2009. He finished with an 87-142 record (.380).

Triano served as an assistant to three coaches before being named interim head coach December 3, 2008 following the dismissal of Sam Mitchell.

A native of Niagara Falls, Canada, Triano became the first Canadian born and Canadian trained coach in the NBA when he joined Lenny Wilkens’ staff for the 2002-03 season.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

He's smart, the players like him and are responding to him. There is no reason to switch. All this is going to do is delay the rebuild.

IMO, I think this is where Jay is good at: being in the front office. I don't think he's good at coaching, maybe assistant coach though. I like him as a coach but the Raptors have to find someone who's better and can bring us to the playoffs. I would be sad if this means PJ has to go.

Calling... Lawrence Frank?

Pretty surprising overall. He's clearly competent and wasn't given the correct tools to work with.

Also surprising given the state of the NBA going into next year. Figured we'd keep him for at least the next year because he's cheap and because of the uncertainty.

Here's hoping we go after a defensive-minded guy.

mixed feelings about this...i thought his personality and coaching style was the perfect fit for a young and rebuilding team, he showed he had the patience to let players play through their faults, and many have been able to significantly improve as a result...

but at the same time, his decision making wasnt always the best, and bad team or not, the results just werent there

I'm a Triano fan, so I'm not overjoyed. They'll likely just find another coach to blame the team's suck-age on.

I like Triano.

Good guy and knows his basketball. Glad to hear he's staying on board.

I'm expecting a Lawrence Frank hiring within the next 3 weeks!

I actually wouldnt mind Frank either, he'd be my 3rd option after Adelman and Shaw.

Good to hear Triano will still be around with the team, also good to hear he won't be coaching anymore
