There's only one of them left that was the coach of his team at the end of last year: Terry Stotts of Atlanta.

He's the only one!

And that's only because the ownership change in Atlanta isn't finished yet.

New Jersey: Byron out, Lawrence Frank in
Boston: O'Brien out, John Carroll in
New York: Cheaney out, Lenny in
Philly: Larry Brown out, Randy Ayers in
Miami: Riley out, Stan Van Gundy in
Washington: Collins out, Eddie Jordan in
Orlando: Rivers out, Johnny Davis in

Indiana: Isaiah out, Rick Carlisle in
Detroit: Rick Carlisle out, Larry Brown in
Milwaukee: George Karl out, Terry Porter in
New Orleans: Paul Silas out, Tim Floyd in
Toronto: Butch Carter out, Kevin O'Neill in
Cleveland: John Lucas out, Paul Silas in
Atlanta: TERRY STOTTS!
Chicago: Bill Cartwright out, Scott Skiles in

This can't be real, can it?
:confused:

Whoa. That is absolutely amazing. I'd assume it's pretty rare for even half the teams in a conference to change coaches in that time span, let alone all of them except one. That's just unbelievable.

How much will you bet that he won't be coming back to Atlanta next year?
If I remember correctly, Atlanta actually searched for a new coach for a while this past summer and when they couldn't get one, they settled for bringing Stotts back. We were close to having it be every team in the East with a different coach.

FYI, only three Western conference teams changed coaches since the end of last season: Houston, Clips and Phoenix. That's quite a disparity.
