Reports: Collins out as 76ers coach
Doug Collins will not coach the 76ers next season.
Collins has informed the Sixers he will not return for the fourth and final year of his contract, according to several reports.
The past week has seen much speculation about Collins’ future with the team, which has limped to a 33-47 record this season.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported on Thursday that Sixers management was privately hoping Collins would decide to quit. Late Sunday, Yahoo! Sports broke the news Collins was in fact done as Sixers coach after just three seasons.
The Sixers play Monday in Detroit before wrapping up their season at Indiana on Wednesday night.
