Lakers News: Team Fires Head Coach Mike Brown

After a 1-4 start the Los Angeles Lakers announced that they have fired head coach Mike Brown, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN LA.

This comes just one day after Jim Buss gave Brown a vote of confidence, something that now means just about nothing.

No announcement has been made as to who will replace brown.

UPDATE: 10:10 AM PST

Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reported that Brown’s agent informed him he had been relieved of his duties.

Adrian Wojnarowski, also of Yahoo! Sports, reported that Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak wanted to give Brown more time.

We’ll update this article as soon as more details are released.

    Mike Brown’s coaching style only fits young players, he will be a very good College coach. But what Lakers need is someone will command request & full confidence, I hope it will be Sloan or Phil Jackson…..or maybe Coach K.

  • random

    I don’t think phil will come back. But I’m hoping for Kurt Rambis to coach the Lakers even though he don’t have great experience as head coach but he was a good player, assisted phil and knows the lakers very well
