Larry Brown Out As Charlotte Coach

Larry Brown is out as coach of the Charlotte Bobcats.

Owner Michael Jordan announced the move in a press release, a day after the Bobcats were outscored 31-12 in the fourth quarter in their fourth straight loss.

"I met with Coach Brown two weeks ago about the team's performance and what we could do to improve it," Jordan said. "We met again this morning after practice. The team has clearly not lived up to either of our expectations and we both agreed that a change was necessary."

The 70-year-old Brown, who was in the third season of his 13th professional and college head coaching job, had been upset with his team for weeks. The Bobcats (9-19) had lost three games by 31 or more points in 10 days before Tuesday's fourth-quarter meltdown against Oklahoma City.

Brown had two years left on his contract...
