Kings fire coach Joerger after three seasons

Kings fire coach Joerger after three seasons

Kings general manager Vlade Divac will fire head coach Dave Joerger on Thursday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

According to Wojnarowski, recently extended general manager Vlade Divac is expected to dismiss the coach in a face-to-face meeting later today. Sacramento finished the year 39-43, good enough for a ninth-place finish in the brutal Western Conference. Rumors have been heating up for the last 48 hours on Williams' future with the team, but they are not new.

The news comes after Divac agreed to a four-year extension with Sacramento to keep him through the 2022-23 season. Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton is one name that has been tied to the Kings if he becomes available.

Joerger has been the Kings' head coach since 2016. The Lakers' season went off the rails once James suffered a groin injury on Christmas Day, and the team won only two more games than they did a season ago.

That means that Joerger should be competing with names such as Tyronn Lue, who guided the Cavaliers to their first-ever National Basketball Association title in 2016, or Tom Thibodeau, who is consistent presence in the postseason.

'What was he thinking?': Tiger Woods in insane moment with security guard
It's the first time three players have shot 64 or better in a single round of the Masters.The tournament record is 63. Webb Simpson was seven-under through 15 holes to sit one back of Finau alongside Xander Schauffele, Scott and Koepka.

"According to sources, the fate of the Kings' third-year coach rests exclusively in Divac's hands", Amick reported.

Fittingly, the Kings have had nine coaches since 2006.

Given the young talent on Sacramento's roster, and given the fact that Joerger guided the team to its best record in 13 years, this coming job search will be a definitive moment for Divac and the Kings. They gave up a little more than 115 points per game.

He has made Miami one of the better defensive teams in the league, but he's far from having head coaching experience.
