Pistons Fire Coach Maurice Cheeks

The Detroit Pistons have fired coach Maurice Cheeks, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Despite back-to-back victories on the weekend, general manager Joe Dumars informed Cheeks of his dismissal on Sunday morning, sources said.

Cheeks didn’t make it to the All-Star break of his first season as Detroit’s coach. He was in the first year of a two-year contract with the Pistons.

Owner Tom Gores had become increasingly impatient with Cheeks, and sources with knowledge of his plans say that he had been pushing for a change in the coaching staff.

Eight different coaches have been replaced under Dumars’ run as GM, but league sources told Yahoo Sports he had been an advocate of giving Cheeks more time as coach – especially in light of back-to-back victories over the weekend.

Detroit is 21-29 and a half-game behind Charlotte for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff chase.
