Charlotte Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins announced today that Paul Silas will not return as head coach and a search for his successor will begin immediately.

"I would like to personally thank Paul for everything he has done for this team under some pretty unique circumstances," Higgins said. "His basketball experience as a coach and a player speak for themselves. We have been fortunate to have someone of his character associated with this franchise and we hope he will continue to be a valuable resource to us in the future."

Silas recently completed his first full season with the Bobcats, after being named interim Head Coach on December 22, 2010, and then having the interim title removed on February 16, 2011. He led the team to a 25-29 record (.463) over the remainder of the 2010-11 season and compiled an overall record of 32-88 (.363) with the Bobcats.

In 11 seasons as an NBA head coach, Silas has a career record of 377-531 with the Clippers (1980-83), Hornets (1999-2003), Cavaliers (2003-05) and Bobcats. He also spent 11 seasons as an assistant coach for the Hornets, Knicks, Nets and Suns.

You know, he was obviously fired because he's black.

Nate McMillan is a North Carolina native and natural candidate for Michael Jordan, but remote chance he'll have interest, sources tell Y

This is a REAL STORY commented on publicly by the Bobcats.

I'd like Nate as well. But the natives might not feel like he's truly one of "us" so who knows. Bring back Allen Bristow!

Probably the right thing to do but I have a soft spot in my heart for Silas. I am actually saddened about this.

Probably going to be forced to go the young assistant coach route, which could be a blessing in disguise

They wont let it go after 8 years, its Bobcat fans turn now. Hornet fans taught me never let go of a grudge, and if need be divide this city to reach your goal. This is what we wanted remember teeray?
