Doc Rivers is no longer the head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Clippers announced Monday night that the two sides had “reached a mutual decision that Rivers” would no longer coach the team. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Rivers was 356-208 through seven seasons with the Clippers, and was the most successful coach in team history. However, a lack of success in the postseason pushed the team to head in a new direction.

Obviously, Rivers won’t struggle at all to find a new coaching job in the NBA. He’ll immediately become the most sought after man in the league.
The dude might not have had a ton of postseason success with the Clippers, but make no mistake about it. Doc Rivers knows how to coach basketball.
If not, you’re taking a gamble that will almost certainly not end well.
We’ll have to wait a little bit to see where Rivers lands, but he won’t be unemployed for long. I can promise you that much.
As for the Clippers, I hope they have a great man ready to roll. If not, this decision will look very stupid.
