Latest On Bobcats’ Coaching Search

The Bobcats' coaching search continues this week with a handful of interviews, including Mike Dunlap of St. John's today, Magic assistant Patrick Ewing tomorrow, and Grizzlies assistant David Joerger on Friday, reports Chris Broussard of ESPN.com.

Warriors assistant Michael Malone and Cavs assistant Nate Tibbetts have already been interviewed by the Bobcats, and assistant Stephen Silas is expected to interview for the open position as well. The Bobcats have also been said to have interest in Pacers assistant Brian Shaw, along with former head coaches such as Nate McMillan and Jerry Sloan.

Speaking to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer yesterday, Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins said the team's coaching search was moving at a "nice, slow pace." Broussard's report backs up that statement, suggesting that Charlotte isn't expected to make a hire for "several weeks." It's possible that the club has other candidates in mind that, like Shaw, are employed by a team still alive in the playoffs, which could drag out the process.
