Mike Brown fired

Mike Brown won 66 games as the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was rewarded by being named the NBA Coach of the Year. However, after the Cavs got eliminated by the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference, some news outlets have reported that the organization has contemplated firing him.

Reportedly, among those who believe that Brown was outcoached in the series against the Magic is owner
Dan Gilbert. One name being floated around as a potential replacement is Pat Riley, who currently works in the front office of the Miami Heat.
After these reports surfaced, the Cavs completely denied that Brown’s job is in jeopardy. Personally, I can’t imagine that Brown could get fired in this situation. Outside of LeBron James, Brown doesn’t have much to work with offensively. And defensively, Brown had the Cavs playing very good defense for practically the entire season.
That said, if the Cavs stumble at all next season, Brown could be fired — this time for real.
