    Grizzlies not renewing Lionel Hollins' contract

    Jun 10, 2013

    Lionel Hollins says the Memphis Grizzlies have told him they will not renew his contract as head coach, even though he's the winningest coach in the franchise's history coming off the team's first trip to the Western Conference finals.

    WMC-TV in Memphis first reported Monday that Hollins said his contract would not be renewed.

    The Grizzlies did not have any immediate comment.

    Hollins' contract expires June 30, and his future with the team has been unsettled since the Spurs swept the Grizzlies in the West finals. Hollins has been the Grizzlies' coach since replacing Marc Iavaroni in January 2009. He led Memphis to a better record each season since then, including a franchise-best 56-26 record this season. The Grizzlies beat first the Clippers, then top-seeded Oklahoma City in the playoffs.
