Pacers Pacers fire Jim O達rien

Quote:
The Indiana Pacers fired coach Jim O達rien on Sunday morning, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

O達rien痴 firing comes after the Pacers lost seven of their past eight games to drop to 10th place in the Eastern Conference. After a strong start to the season, the Pacers have faded in recent weeks and O達rien痴 abrasive and erratic coaching style became a greater issue within the organization.

no point in firing Triano, he has nothing that would lead us to contention at the moment, pacers on the other hand do

all part of "retooling not rebuilding" process
Altho i wonder if Carlesimo as head coach would make any difference. Too similar in style to Triano, just a bit more intense.

Triano should be next. Change is necessary no matter what the outcome. we can't be any worse.

He also makes some of the worst coaching decisions of any coach in the league on a nightly basis.

Brewer posterizes McRoberts with a two hand tomahawk. Pacers coach flips out and calls the ref something really nasty, gets tossed from the game, then loses his job.

Wonder what he said?

This is his final guaranteed season. Next season is a team option. If there is a god (which i highly doubt there is), they won't pick that option up.

I really like Triano. It's just the players, especially our starters, obviously they are nowhere near as STARTERS to any contending team. If you all agree to this then what's the point of slamming Triano? Would this team be a contender if Phil Jackson is coaching this team? No.

Its called building a foundation. We have young guys with a dumbass coach, that isn't good in the long run. May as well get the long-term coach sooner than later.

MLSE doesn't give a fuck about anything but money, they won't spend any of it.
