Well, all we can say about this is it's not much of a surprise.

The Charlotte Hornets have fired heave coach Steve Clifford, a native of ME, after the team failed to reach the playoffs for the third time in the last four seasons.

The Hornets made two playoff appearances in Clifford's tenure, but did not advance beyond the first round.

"I don't have my head in the sand (as far as) what this head coaching is all about", Clifford said of expectations to win. The growing list of teams searching for its next head coach includes Orlando, New York, Phoenix, Milwaukee and Memphis.

Clifford had a year left on his contract. Charlotte already hired Mitch Kupchak to replace Rich Cho as the team's president and general manager earlier this season, and the Clifford firing allows Kupchak to reshape the team how he wants. "You can get fired in one week in this league".

Stackhouse, also mentioned in connection with the Knicks and Magic jobs, has coached the Raptors 905 to the G League Finals the past two seasons. He missed a month of the 2017-18 season due to headaches caused by sleep deprivation.

Clifford said Wednesday this season's roster failed to improve collectively as his previous Charlotte teams had. He finished with a regular-season record of 196-214 (.478 winning percentage).
