The New Orleans Pelicans will be looking for their third head coach in three years after parting ways with Stan Van Gundy.

The writing was probably on the wall after the Pelicans underperformed, though that was probably more due to a poorly constructed roster than anything Van Gundy did.

But coaches are always the scapegoats, so Van Gundy will be back to his old TV job and David Griffin will get to keep his.
