On Thursday, April 11th, the Grizzlies coaches and players conducted their exit interviews with the media. There were many assurances that the team and its management would come back next season mostly in tact.
However, the microphones had barely been put away before the WOJ bomb came across our phones that changes had been made in the front office and coaching staff of the Grizzlies.
J.B. Bickerstaff was 48-97 in his year and change stint as head coach of the Grizzlies.
It was no secret that Chris Wallace has been the subject of much scrutiny from the fans over the years for his failed free agent signings and busted draft picks. Many felt that the road to an improved Memphis franchise started without him at the helm. Those people now have their wish. Kind of??
Here are some reactions from local media members upon hearing the news.
