BREAKING NEWS
Pistons fire coach Michael Curry after one season
Will Bill Laimbeer get the job? 'I'm not going to comment on that,' he says
David Goricki / The Detroit News

Auburn Hills -- Pistons coach Michael Curry has been fired, the team announced Tuesday.

"This was a difficult decision to make," Pistons president Joe Dumars said. "I want to thank Michael for his hard work and dedication to the organization. However, at this time, I have decided to make a change."

Curry was 39-43 in his only season as Pistons coach. Detroit was swept by Cleveland in the first round of the playoffs.

There is speculation that former Pistons player Bill Laimbeer is a candidate to replace Curry. Laimbeer resigned as coach of the Detroit Shock on June 16, and he has for years expressed a desire to be an NBA coach.

When he was contacted by The Detroit News on Tuesday and asked about Curry's firing, Laimbeer said, "It's the first I've heard of it. Really, they fired him?"

Laimbeer was asked if he had been contacted by the Pistons about the head coaching position.

"I've been out pursuing different things," he said.

As for his reaction to Curry's firing, Laimbeer said, "I don't have any feelings about it."

Laimbeer was asked if he wanted to be head coach of the Pistons.

"I'm not going to comment on that," he said. "I'm in the store right now with my wife."

The idiots on the radio said Laimbeer could not successfully coach because he coached women and does not know anything about men's basketball.... what the hell do they think he played???
