BREAKING: Memphis Grizzlies Fire Head Coach David Fizdale

In a very surprising turn of events, the Memphis Grizzlies have fired head coach David Fizdale

The Grizzlies are currently in the middle of an 8 game losing streak, however they started the year off as one of the hottest teams in the NBA. Fizdale had been in the news recently after he benched star center Marc Gasol in their most recent loss against the Nets.

Assistant coach JB Bickerstaff will take over in the interim.

However, according to @DraftExpress, Gasol and Fizdale already had a very poor relationship going into the season. Perhaps the Grizzlies just decided to back their star instead of their coach.


Fizdale should be back coaching in the league soon.
