Pistons fire Rick Carlisle, hire Larry Brown

The Detroit Pistons fired coach Rick Carlisle and will hire Larry Brown, a source within the league said Saturday.


Carlisle told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher that he was fired late Friday. The Pistons will replace him with Brown on Monday, the source told The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.


Carlisle led the Pistons to a 50-win season and a spot in the conference finals for the first time since 1991. Detroit's playoff run ended May 24, when the Pistons were swept by the New Jersey Nets in the Eastern Conference finals.

Carlisle said Friday that he didn't know if he wanted to pursue another coaching position or return to television.

Carlisle's impressive résumé with the Pistons also includes an NBA Coach of the Year award for the 2001-2002 season, his first season in Detroit.

Carlisle, 42, had one year remaining on his contract for $2 million. The Pistons decided they did not want to give him an extension.

larry brown did the biggest no-no in the coaching profession here... talk to a team about someone's job when that someone still had the job.
