The Brooklyn Nets have relieved Avery Johnson of his coaching duties, general manager Billy King announced Thursday.


Johnson, who was in the final year of his contract, was named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for October and November following an 11-4 start. But the Nets have won just three of their last 13 games in December, prompting the team to go in another direction.


The Nets, at 14-14, currently hold the eighth and final playoff spot in the East.



"The Nets ownership would like to express thanks to Avery for his efforts and to wish him every success in the future," principal owner Mikhail Prokhorov said.


Johnson was named coach of the Nets on June 15, 2010. In two-plus seasons with the Nets, Johnson compiled a record of 60-116.

About time. I never thought Avery Johnson was that good of a coach.

He inherited that really good Dallas team.

Didn't expect it to happen this soon

Atleast miss the playoffs first and have a horrible draft

Lol i just recently watched the video of avery and talib kweli talking about brooklyn community and the nets. Then this. The nets have looked average and have tanked fast.

The nets just have a overpaid backcourt, and no dominant player on their team. Its a shame that avery had to be the scapegoat.

You can take the Nets out of New Jersey, but you can't take the Nets out of the Nets.

Makes me hate the Nets even more
Thats some bull####
Johnson has been doing the best with a ####ty hand the GM dealt to him.
Deron Williams is overpaid and a panic move
Joe Johnson is definitely overpaid and also a panic move and they didn't get a draft pick & Dwight Howard.
