Oklahoma City Thunder Fire Coach Scott Brooks after 7 Years
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma City Thunder have fired coach Scott Brooks. The team made the announcement Wednesday.
Brooks coached the Thunder for seven seasons. Starting in 2010-11, he led the team to the Western Conference Finals three out of four years, and the Thunder reached the NBA Finals in 2012. The Thunder failed to make the playoffs this past season, as injuries limited them to a 45-37 finish.
Brooks was 338-207 (.620) with the Thunder and was the 2009-10 NBA Coach of the Year.
