DETROIT (WKZO) -- Just nine months after he became the ninth Pistons Coach in the last dozen years, Mo Cheeks has been fired and the search has begun for number ten.

With a record of 21 and 29, management announced that Cheeks was not getting the team to perform up to its potential and he was handed his walking papers.

It happened so suddenly that some current Pistons players learned about it in tweets and from the media. They did not see it coming.

Assistant Jon Loyer will take over as interim head coach.
