Phoenix Suns and Gentry Part Ways

Alvin Gentry and the Phoenix Suns have a mutual agreement to separate ways after his 5-plus seasons of being a head coach.  The new coach will be revealed in 1 to 2 days.

Gentry became the interim head coach of Phoenix last February of 2009, and became the 14th head coach in the history of franchise on May 2009.  In all the 5 seasons, Gentry’s teams made a 158-144 (.523) record, 1 playoff appearance and a participation in the Western Conference Finals in 2010.  Today, the Suns have a 13-28 (.317) record at the middle of the 2012-2013 season.

Just recently, Gentry said that Phoenix, with the season apparently headed south, may turn to the team's younger players and eye at the future. 

Phoenix Suns lacked a go-to scorer and had a struggle with depth as he continuously tried making new lineups.
