Dan Majerle Will Not Return As Assistant This Season
If you didn't follow this, Dan (and another another assistant) were pissed that they got overlooked in favor of Lindsey Hunter for Interim Coach. The Suns did a 48 hour interview process for them but apparently it was a charade and Lon and Lance had already made up their mind on Lindsey.

Dan Majerle will not return as Phoenix Suns assistant coach
Suns Ring of Honor member Dan Majerle will not resume his role as assistant coach for the second half of the season.
Majerle was in his fifth season as a Suns assistant coach but had stopped working with the team Sunday when Lindsey Hunter was selected as the interim head coach in place of Alvin Gentry. Hunter was selected Sunday over lead assistant coach Elston Turner, assistant coach Igor Kokoskov and Majerle, who had been the suggestion of many Suns players to General Manager Lance Blanks during interviews Friday and Saturday.
