CHARLOTTE, N.C. — An official with the Charlotte Bobcats said the team has fired head coach Mike Dunlap after one season.

WSOC reported that the team finished 21-61 this season, finishing with the second-worst record in the NBA ahead of only the Orlando Magic.

Dunlap was hired in 2012 to replace Paul Silas after the team finished the 2011-2012 season with the worst winning percentage in NBA history.

Dunlap was an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets from 2006 to 2008.
