Triano Ousted as Toronto Raptors Coach, Will Stay as Consultant

Jay Triano won’t return as coach of the Toronto Raptors next season after the National Basketball Association team declined to exercise an option in his contract.

The search for a new coach, the eighth in franchise history, will begin immediately, the Raptors said in an e-mailed statement today. Triano will be retained as a special assistant to the president and general manager, the release said.

“After almost three full seasons of observation and evaluation, I believe that bringing in a new voice as head coach will accelerate the progress we are looking to make in the coming years,” Raptors General Manager Bryan Colangelo said in the statement.

Toronto never had a winning record under Triano. The Raptors followed a 40-42 mark in 2009-10 by registering the third-worst performance in the league this past season at 22-60. Triano took over on an interim basis on Dec. 3, 2008, following the dismissal of Sam Mitchell. Toronto finished 33-49 that season, with Triano leading the team to a 25-40 record.

Triano, 52, has spent nine seasons at the Raptors and leaves the post with an 87-142 record.
