Charlotte Hornets seems to be two steps forward and one step back, with former head coach Steve Clifford taking command again. I am.
After Kenny Atkinson rejected Charlotte last week, a report ofemerged Thursday, making Clifford a favorite of the Hornets' work. On Friday, ESPNconfirmed the recruitment of veteran head coaches.
Clifford will take over James Bolego, the only head coach during Clifford's four-year absence. Borrego led the Hornets to a record of 138-163 in four years, losing consecutive play-in tournaments, which is believed to be the reason for his dismissal.
Clifford, who coached Orlando Magic from 2018 to 2021, reached 1962-214 in five years at Charlotte, not so proud of the Hornets record, but could reach the playoffs. I was able to do it twice during his first tenure.
What is the reason for his return engagement? Friendlyness. Clifford has had a good relationship with team owner Michael Jordan and general manager Mitch Kupchak since his dismissal in 2018.
