The Los Angeles Clippers’ NBA playoff disappointment seems to have cost head coach Doc Rivers his job.
Rivers will not be returning to the Clippers’ bench next year after seven seasons with the team, according to ESPN.
This season was particularly disappointing as the club paired superstars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George last summer in hopes of overtaking LeBron James’ Lakers and making a title run.
Instead, the Clippers blew a 3-1 series lead to the Nuggets in the Western Conference semifinals and hinted at chemistry issues.
“Thank you Clipper Nation for allowing me to be your coach and for all your support in helping make this a winning franchise,” River said in a statement on social media. “When I took this job, my goals were to make this a winning basketball program, a free agent destination, and bring a championship to this organization. While I was able to accomplish most of my goals, I won’t be able to see them all through.
“Though it was a disappointing ending to our season, you are right there and I know what this team is capable of accomplishing with your support. Thank you to all the players, coaches, and staff for helping us get here. Most importantly, thank you to the fans. We went through a lot, and I am grateful for my time here.”
Rivers, who turns 59 next month, finished with a 356-208 (.631) record in Los Angeles and would likely be a prime candidate to land one of the vacant NBA coaching jobs.
