Larry Brown Steps Down

Larry Brown Steps Down - Paul Silas has reached agreement to take over as the Charlotte Bobcats coach for the rest of the season after Larry Brown resigned Wednesday.

Former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson also received strong consideration from Bobcats owner Michael Jordan, who listened to recommendations from Brown before deciding to hire Silas.

Silas still lives in the Charlotte area and is a popular figure among the area’s pro basketball fans. He coached the Charlotte-New Orleans Hornets for 4½ seasons, reaching the playoffs four times.

Michael Jordan and Brown came to a “mutual decision,” Jordan said, to parts ways on Wednesday. The Bobcats have started the season with a disappointing 9-19 record, and Brown’s disenchantment with the job grew more obvious with every loss.

Patrick Ewing, an Orlando Magic assistant coach, was also under consideration, sources said, but Jordan worried about putting his close friend in the difficult position of being an interim coach with no assurance of a long-term deal. Utah Jazz assistant Tyrone Corbin, San Antonio Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer, Phoenix Suns assistant Dan Majerle and Detroit Pistons assistant Darrell Walker were also potential candidates discussed internally.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
