Despite a record regular season, it looks like Vinny Del Negro is out as the Los Angeles Clippers’ head coach.
According to ESPN.com, the Clips have opted not to offer a new contract to Del Negro, whose current contract will expire on June 30.
The coach lead the team to a franchise-record 56 wins this season and the Pacific Division title. But, disappointedly, the Clips were eliminated by the Memphis Grizzlies in the opening round of the Western Conference playoffs, losing in six games after taking a 2-0 series lead.
Del Negro coached the Clippers for three seasons, and went 128-102. During his tenures as the Clippers and previously, the Chicago Bulls’ head coach, he amassed a 210-184 career record.
