Although a number of NBA head coaching jobs may open up at some point in the next few weeks, the Bobcats remain the only team currently interviewing coaching candidates, and are taking advantage of the opportunity. Chris Broussard of ESPN.com (via Twitter) identifies Mike Dunlap and Nate Tibbetts as the two newest candidates that will be interviewed by the Bobcats within the next week or so.
Dunlap is currently serving as the associate head coach at St. John's University, while Tibbetts is employed by the NBA's Cavaliers as an assistant coach. They will join Patrick Ewing, Michael Malone, Brian Shaw, and Stephen Silas as candidates for the Bobcats' coaching job that either have already received an interview or are expected to meet with the team in the near future.
The Bobcats are looking for a replacement for Paul Silas, who won't return to the Bobcats' bench after leading the team to an NBA-record-worst 7-59 mark.
