Mike Dunlap rumors

Players throughout the roster have voiced their dissatisfaction with Bjorkgren and their general unhappiness amid a down season, including key star players in Domantas Sabonis and Malcolm Brogdon, sources said. Those sources say Bjorkgren has implemented an analytics style of coaching that players privately do not find suitable for the roster, and that there have been issues among the coaching staff at times. Bjorkgren has worked to address matters internally, and one source described him as “over-communicative” to make sure he is sharing and receiving messages from the roster. One coaching source predicted that this would have a similar ending to what took place in Charlotte in 2013, when former St. John’s assistant Mike Dunlap was fired after just one season amid widespread player frustration.

Loyola Marymount on Wednesday named Mike Dunlap as its new basketball coach, one day after the school announced Max Good’s contract would not be renewed after his six-year record of 77-117. Dunlap, an LMU graduate, becomes the program’s 26th men’s coach. He is a seasoned, respected basketball mind with more than 30 years experience on the amateur and professional levels. Loyola Marymount finished 13-19 this year and 4-14 in West Coast Conference play. “I love the challenge of coming to LMU, and love the fact I am going back home,” Dunlap said in a statement. “I am really comfortable with the Southern California and Northern California student-athlete that is going to end up at LMU, and I think this is a great fit.”
The biggest thing Michael Jordan has learned as owner of the Charlotte Bobcats? Admit and rectify mistakes quickly. For example, replacing Mike Dunlap one season into his tenure as coach. “I actually liked Mike, I absolutely did. I said it last year when we first hired him that I could have played for him. But that doesn’t translate to today’s kids,” Jordan told the Observer Friday. “The difference between Steve (Clifford) and Mike is the kids are understanding and articulating what (Clifford is) saying.”
