Default Hornets fire coach Byron Scott, replace him with GM Jeff Bower

Yikes.

Quote:
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.”

I don't watch many NO games, but I thought NO fans were calling Scott one of the best coaches in the game only a few seasons ago? What's he supposed to do with that roster?

He sure was a good coach, guess that didn't last long. In his defense, the current roster is pretty thin.

It's funny how you call Chris Paul a thug when you have Bruce Bowen as your avatar.

Too early IMO.

9 games into the season? C'mon New Orleans. Byron was a great coach, hope he ends up with the Clippers.

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.

I know... the only logic I can see behind the GM & President is that teams like Houston in their same division are winning games... so they felt he should be able to do the same with that team
