Phoenix Suns And Head Coach Alvin Gentry Mutually Part Ways

8382047We have news from Phoenix. Here’s John Gambadoro of Sports 620 KTAR.



Alvin Gentry was in his fifth season (trying to finish a fourth full year as he was interim coach for 31 games in 2008-09) as Suns head coach. But the roster was a huge mess going into this season with castoffs like Michael Beasley, Luis Scola, and Goran Dragic mixing in with guys like Marcin Gortat, Jared Dudley, and Shannon Brown. There is no superstar, nobody to build around, no foundation, and no direction. Not sure if any coach could’ve fixed this mess. While Gentry has been typically getting work as a coach that would help rebuild teams, the Suns decided to go on a different direction.

Gentry easily coached the best season of his career in 2009-10 when the Suns went 54-28 and rode that momentum all the way to the Western Conference Finals. Many critics didn’t even see the Suns making the playoffs that year but they went on an incredible run as Gentry made great use of the roster and was able to turn the Suns into one of the deepest teams in the league. They took the Lakers to six games in that Western Finals series and it took a Metta World Peace game-winner and an incredible Kobe Bryant shooting clinic to knock Phoenix out.

Alvin Gentry went 158-144 (.523) with the Phoenix Suns. He also made stops at Miami, Detroit, and the Clippers. Overall, his record is 335-370 (.475). When he would get coaching jobs, it would mostly be for rebuilding purposes. He’s been in the postseason only twice in his coaching career. Gentry is the fourth coach to not make it through the season, following Mike Brown (Lakers), Avery Johnson (Nets), and Scott Skiles (Bucks).

The Suns are currently 13-28 and are last in the Western Conference. The interim coach had not been named as of this writing.
