It has been speculated for a few weeks now, but today was D-Day for Scott Brook. He has been relieved of his duties of head coach of the OKC Thunder after seven very successful seasons. The irony in all of this is that if the Thunder would’ve won just one more regular season game, they would still be playing and Brooks would still have a job.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have fired head coach Scott Brooks, the team announced Wednesday.
“This is an extremely difficult decision on many levels,” general manager Sam Presti said in a statement. “This decision is not a reflection of this past season, but rather an assessment of what we feel is necessary at this point in time in order to continually evolve, progress and sustain. We determined that, in order to stimulate progress and put ourselves in the best position next season and as we looked to the future, a transition of this kind was necessary for the program.”
