Frank O’Brien Rumors

He left. I called him and said, ‘You’ve got the job.’ “I told him to bring all the coaches to dinner that night. So we got everybody together and I got up and all I said was: ‘Frank is in charge.’ “(I said,) ‘He’s going to run the team but I want to tell all you guys right now, if I hear you say anything negative, other than coaching negativity about a bad pass or a bad screen, I’m going to fire you on the spot. I don’t want any of that here. We’re going to look at the future. We’re going to be positive about the future.’ “Bird paused. He smirked. “I’d say Frank went a little overboard,” he said. “He’s been here what, three years, four years? I’ve still never heard him say anything negative. It worked. He’s done an excellent job.”
