Lionel Hollins is out as Griz head coach. His contract won't be renewed, sources told the CA. Story coming at http://t.co/CxcAZdJXK2— Ronald Tillery (@CAGrizBlog) June 10, 2013
Tillery states "philosophical difference" as the reason the front office decided to go in a different direction than Hollins.
Joerger is widely believed to be the frontrunner to replace Hollins because the front office views him as an up-and-coming, potential star coach. Joerger’s salary also would be far less than what Hollins, Karl and Gentry would command. That’s significant because there is a belief among some people in the Griz front office that similar results could be achieved without a high-priced coach.
