Stan Van Gundy reportedly will not return as the head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans after the team finished 31-41 in his first season on the bench.
Van Gundy has also been the head coach of the Detroit Pistons (2014-2018), Orlando Magic (2007-12) and Miami Heat (2003-05), with an overall record of 554-425. The Pelicans finished 11th in the Western Conference this season, two games shy of the play-in tournament.
Teresa Weatherspoon, who served as an assistant under Van Gundy this season, reportedly is expected to be a candidate for the opening. The former WNBA star is one of a few women being considered for NBA head coaching positions, including Becky Hammon.
The Pelicans reportedly will also consider several of the candidates they interviewed last season before selecting Van Gundy.
