The Pistons have fired head coach Lawrence Frank. Team president Joe Dumars yesterday thanked Frank for his hard work and dedication, but also said it is in the best interest of the franchise to make a change at this time.
Frank guided Detroit to a 29-and-53 mark this season and was 54-and-94 overall in two seasons with the team.
His termination means the Pistons will be out to hire their 12th coach in the 21 years since the departure of Chuck Daly.
Also on Thursday, Philadelphia coach Doug Collins resigned after 3 seasons with the 76’ers and Byron Scott was relieved of his duties by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
