  • Suns Fire Igor Kokoskov As Head Coach

    Suns fire Kokoskov

    After only one season on the job, Igor Kokoskov was fired as coach of the Phoenix Suns on Monday night.

    Kokoskov is considered a superior offensive teacher of the game but fell victim to a roster devoid of point guards and organizational dysfunction that has turned the franchise into a coaching graveyard. Kokoskov started three rookies in 36 games this season, with the Atlanta Hawks the next-highest team in games starting three rookies, with four.

    The Suns' next coach will be their seventh in an eight-season span.

    The Suns finished tied with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second-worst record in the NBA at 19-63. The New York Knicks were 17-65. Phoenix was an NBA-worst 21-61 a year ago.

    Since 2012-13, the Suns are 199-375, tied with the Orlando Magic for the worst record in the NBA in that span.
