We called it. It looks like the reports have come to fruition and Scott Brooks has been dismissed as the head coach of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Team officials announced today that after seven years, Brooks was no longer a part of their franchise. Brooks' fate may have been solidified after the Thunder missed the playoffs for the first time in years last week.
In a final farewell, Thunder chairman, Clayton Bennett, stated, "We have a deep appreciation for all that Scott has contributed to the Thunder organization over the last seven years. While a very hard decision, I support the need to transition to a new coach that will allow us to continue the growth and progress that will help us reach all of our goals."
As Boyz II Men so eloquently put it, “It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.”
