One year after admitting firing Mike Brown as coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010 was the wrong move, owner Dan Gilbert did it again.

“This is a very tough business,” Gilbert said in a news release. “Mike worked hard over this last season to move our team in the right direction. Although, there was some progress from our finish over the few prior seasons, we believe we need to head in a different direction.”

According to a person close to the situation, Chicago Bulls assistant coach Adrian Griffin has emerged as a top candidate for the job. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition on anonymity because it has not yet been made public.
