Grizzlies fire Head Coach Dave Joerger

Following on the heels of the Pacers’ parting ways with Head Coach Frank Vogel, the Memphis Grizzlies have relieved Head Coach Dave Joerger of his coaching duties.

In his three seasons at the helm of the Grizzlies, Joerger made the playoffs each season, had a win percentage of .598 and made the playoffs again this season despite decimating injuries to the team. 

The team’s general manager, Chris Wallace, said in a statement:

After careful consideration, I concluded that a change was needed to foster the strong culture required to achieve sustainable, long-term success for this organization, the city and our fans, said General Manager, Chris Wallace.

On behalf of the Grizzlies organization I would like to thank Dave for his work and time in Memphis, Wallace continued. We wish Dave and his family all the best and success as he moves forward in his career.
