Might the Kings find a third head coach for the 2014-15 season? If reports are true, they could still be considering George Karl, too.
The Kings are “ramping up their search" to find a replacement for head coach Tyrone Corbin with Karl as the potential target, according to Aaron Bruski of NBC Sports.
Kings ramping up their search for a new head coach, I’m told. No firm timetable, but the All Star break could be the time we see a switch.— Aaron Bruski (@aaronbruski) February 6, 2015
To answer a bunch of you, George Karl is still a target for the Kings as they work through the decision-making process.— Aaron Bruski (@aaronbruski) February 6, 2015
Sacramento (17-31) has lost 10 of its last 11 games and is now 6-18 under Corbin as its head coach since taking over for the dismissed Michael Malone.
Expectations were low for the Kings this season, but that changed after an unexpected 5-1 start before All-Star reserve DeMarcus Cousins went out with viral meningitis for nine games.
When Sacramento’s record dipped to 11-13, Malone was surprisingly fired. The Kings were 39-67 overall during his brief tenure.
Given that Malone wasn’t safe at two games under .500 this season, Corbin may very well be on the hot seat given the tailspin that has ensued.
