Warriors fire assistant coach Darren Erman
Second assistant coach removed within two weeks after "violation of company policy."
The Warriors have now lost two assistant coaches in two weeks. The Warriors announced on Saturday that they have terminated the contract of assistant Darren Erman. The move comes just weeks after reassigning Brian Scalabrine to the D-League Warriors at the behest of coach Mark Jackson. From the Warriors:
The Golden State Warriors have relieved Assistant Coach Darren Erman of his duties with the organization due to a violation of company policy, it was announced today. Erman, 37, was in his third season with the Warriors after spending four years with the Boston Celtics.
“This is the type of decision that would be made across the board and irrespective of position within the organization,” said Warriors’ General Manager Bob Myers. “Obviously, the timing is unfortunate, but we hold all of our employees, whether in Basketball Operations or other aspects of the business, accountable for their actions and to the same standard. We move forward and thank Darren for his contributions.”
So that's fun. The Warriors have lost two assistant with two weeks before the playoffs start. Erman coached the Warriors in Summer League last summer. He joined the Warriors three seasons ago; prior to that he worked with Tom Thibodeau on Doc Rivers' staff in Boston.
