He had a record of 215-326 leading the team. From ESPN-
The Los Angeles Clippers have decided to make a coaching change with just 32 games left in the season, relieving Mike Dunleavy of his duties, the team announced on Thursday.
The Clippers have named assistant Kim Hughes as interim coach.
Dunleavy, who has been serving as the Clippers’ coach/general manager since Elgin Baylor left the club early last season, will retain his front-office title.
The Clippers began play Thursday with the 12th-best record in the Western Conference, seven games out of a playoff spot at 21-28.
Dunleavy has been a head NBA almost continuously for the last 20 years, the last seven of which were with the Clippers. The Clippers were doing better this season than last year’s horrible 19-63 but still Dunleavy hasn’t been able to turn around this moribund franchise. It looks about time to me to try giving someone else a chance.
