Alvin Gentry and the Suns have agreed to "mutually part ways," and an interim coach is expected to be named in the next 24-48 hours
First of all, wow. Secondly, we can't say that it comes as a total surprise. Gentry's name has been mentioned by several when talking about coaches on the hot seat, and the Suns are 13-28 -- dead last in the entire Western Conference. Gentry was also in the final year of his contract. Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the favorites for the interim coaching position are Elston Turner and Lindsey Hunter.
