Hornets fire coach Byron Scott, replace him with GM Jeff Bower
The New Orleans Hornets announced today that they have relieved Byron Scott of head coaching duties. Scott will be replaced by General Manager Jeff Bower.
“I want to thank Byron for the hard work he has put in during his time with the Hornets,” said Hornets Owner George Shinn. “I’ve hired Jeff Bower to take over the coaching reign. He knows this team better than anyone, has the respect of the players and in basketball circles, is regarded as one of the best basketball minds in the business. This is our best opportunity to reach our goals this season.”
Wasnt CP3 and Scott really close to each other and I heard Paul say in numerous interviews that Scott is like a father figure to him and couldnt imagine playing for anyone else..I guess things went sour fast.
