NBA’s Bobcats Hire St. John’s Assistant as Coach, Observer Says

June 19 (Bloomberg) -- The Charlotte Bobcats hired St. John’s University assistant coach Mike Dunlap as their new head coach, the Charlotte Observer reported, citing an unidentified person familiar with the process.

Dunlap, 54, was the acting head coach at St. John’s last season while Steve Lavin was recovering from prostate cancer surgery. In Charlotte, he replaces Paul Silas, who was fired after the team went 7-59 and set a record for the lowest winning percentage in National Basketball Association history.

Dunlap was one of 10 candidates to interview for the Bobcats’ vacancy and was offered the job yesterday after meeting with team owner Michael Jordan and other front office officials, the Observer said. Dunlap previously worked in the NBA as an assistant with the Denver Nuggets from 2006-08.
