According to WPLG-TV in Miami, Riley, who was named to the Basketball Hall of Fame earlier this year, is expected to make if official at 4pm et.

Riley's exit comes following a tremendous on-court struggle for his team. Just two years removed from coaching a team led by Dwyane Wade and Shaquille O'Neal to the NBA championship, the Heat floundered to an NBA worst 15-67 record this season.

The 63-year-old coach has been with the Heat since 1995, when he left the New York Knicks after four seasons as their head coach. He coached the Heat for eight seasons until stepping down in 2003.

Riley remained with the team in a front-office capacity but returned to the bench in 2005 after then-coach Stan Van Gundy announced his resignation just 21 games into the campaign.

Six months later, the Heat upended the Dallas Mavericks to win their first and only NBA championship in franchise history.

This past season, Riley took a leave of absence in January 2007 to undergo surgery for hip and knee problems before returning to the team a little more than a month later.

Oh, surprise! But you know if the Heat were kicking ass, he'd still be at the helm. If Miami goes on a run next season, you know he'd find some way to insert himself as head coach - again.
