Two days ago Dwane Casey was named NBA Coach of the Year. Today he was fired by the Toronto Raptors.
The one-seed in the Eastern Conference, the Raptors won a franchise-record 59 games this season. Over the last seven seasons he took Toronto to one Eastern Conference Finals and led them to a 320-238 record.
Casey’s only problem: he could not beat LeBron.
The Raptors have been eliminated in the playoffs by the Cavaliers for three straight seasons. Instead of changing the roster, the Raptors will make a change on the sidelines. The former Kentucky Wildcat National Champion is looking for a new job, and I have a feeling it won’t take him long to find one.
