    Hey guys cheer up..do you know what this means...NO Byron..NO Byron rotations! Devin Brown..you're going to the bench. Thornton and JuJu (again) welcome to the starting line-up! Collison's minutes should be going up. Whitney Houston's husbands - down. WOOOOOOOH! I'm excited about seeing the actual changes on the floor! This should be fun!

    Thats a good plan and all but what makes you think this is going to happen?

    Well, at least the confrontations between Floyd and GerryV could be entertaining.


    Geez, how'd this become such a cluster-eff in less than two seasons?

    I've said countless of times that firing Scott would be a very bad decision and no good would come out of it.

    I'm glad you people finally got what you want, because this team isn't going anywhere this year

    I don't disagree with you HH that this situation looks terrible at the moment, but the cupboard is not bare. CP3, DWest, Okafor, and some looming cap space could make this job attractive to someone if they get to run the show.

    Winning less games when your team isn't going anywhere anyway is plenty good enough for me. Next year we can all think up cheesy Paul to Wall cheers

    Tim Floyd is a great coach andwill do a great job of coaching the post men and game planning. This will be a great role for him. He turned Magloire into an all star then he fell off the map after. His strength is getting production from undersized big men. He lso drwas up the best last second plays and out of bounds. Real basketball people understand how good he is. This will be the first time we will have some real baketball minds coaching since Scott came.

    Yeah, I was in my email for about 20 minutes deleting old stuff and come here to see this. For some reason I can't stop laughing.

    Tim Floyd is best at being a college coach imo. I don't know that NBA players respect him. Baron surely didn't but then again Baron is a special case so it will remain to be seen.

    I'm not at all surprised by this. I looked for a breaking news bulletin each time the Hornets lost a game this season.

    The official announcement:

    November 12, 2009
    NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans Hornets announced today that they have relieved Byron Scott of head coaching duties. Scott will be replaced by General Manager Jeff Bower.

    “I want to thank Byron for the hard work he has put in during his time with the Hornets,” said Hornets Owner George Shinn. “I’ve hired Jeff Bower to take over the coaching reign. He knows this team better than anyone, has the respect of the players and in basketball circles, is regarded as one of the best basketball minds in the business. This is our best opportunity to reach our goals this season.”

    Bower, who has spent his 14-plus seasons with the club, has been an invaluable asset for the Hornets at all levels in basketball operations. He began his tenure with the Hornets as an advance scout from 1995 to 1997 before earning a promotion as the team’s director of scouting. In addition to his scouting duties during the 1998-99 season, Bower joined the coaching ranks as an assistant after Paul Silas was named interim head coach on March 7, 1999 (and helped him lead the Hornets to a 22-13 record). After serving as the assistant general manager for the 2000-01 season, Bower was promoted to general manager in June of 2001 and has since held that position. He returned to the bench as an assistant coach under Floyd in 2003-04. Bower’s years of experience working at all levels in the Hornets’ basketball operations department culminated with his appointment to the current post of general manager just prior to the start of the team’s 2005-06 training camp.

    “Accountability was our theme this past summer,” said Hornets Vice President of Basketball Chad Shinn. “We talked about the fact that everyone on our staff is held to a certain standard of performance and we didn’t feel this was happening at the head coach level. We feel like we still have an opportunity with our nucleus to get to where we want and Jeff is the right guy, right now to move us in that direction from the bench.”

    “As we look at our long-term coaching plans, it’s not about who the head coach is, it’s about the role of the head coach to get the team to perform to their capabilities and reaching our potential this season,” said Bower.

    Prior to joining the Hornets, Bower enjoyed an impressive career at the collegiate level. He spent three years as an assistant coach at Penn State University from 1983-86 before moving to Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. After first serving as an assistant coach from 1986 through 1990, he was promoted to associate head coach, a position he held for five years. Bower helped lead the Red Foxes to an NCAA Tournament appearance in 1987 after winning the Northeast Conference.

    In a related move, Tim Floyd has been hired as the top assistant coach.

    Floyd served as head coach of the Hornets for the 2003-04 season, leading the team to a 41-41 record. Most recently, Floyd served as the head coach at USC from 2005-2009, leading the Trojans to a 85-49 mark and three NCAA appearances during his tenure. In the 2007 NCAA Tournament, Floyd led USC to a Sweet 16 appearance. The team’s 25-12 record that season set a record for most wins in school history. The Trojans advanced to the second round of the 2009 NCAA Tournament before falling to eventual runner-up Michigan State. Floyd also coached for the Chicago Bulls, Iowa State, the University of Idaho and Texas-El Paso. Floyd is a native of Hattiesburg, Miss., and a 1977 graduate of Louisiana Tech.

    I have no problem with Bower as the coach at this point, this is the trend of the NBA with the GM taking over coaching duties mid-season. It saves money and also makes the GM a bit more responsible for the team he has assembled. Bower is a BB coach, whether he is any good, who knows.

    The Floyd thing makes this move look bush league though.

    So it's kind of like Isiah. Now it's up to Bower to coach the team he put together.

    Seems like Shinn STILL wants to contend this season, unbelievable but the guy is just delusional so we should expect it. Also note that they make zero mention of Floyd's Chicago tenure

    Precisely, except Bower is a much lesser name and won't last nearly as long as Isiah did.

    all the drama queens, Jesus. Let the guy play one game and we'll see how this pans out. Maybe Bower isn't such a bad idea. Face it, if the guy makes it bad then next season we will have both new GM and HC... And Floyd was a great college coach who now might be a lot more mature than he was in his first nba span, this can work but nothing is written in stone at this point.

    This season was written off when Scott entered it as a lame duck. It could only get worse from there and did.
