Paul Silas won’t be back as Charlotte Bobcats coach next season.


Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins announced on Monday that a search for his successor will begin immediately. Silas, who took over after Larry Brown was fired in December 2010, oversaw the worst NBA season in history with Charlotte going 7-59 in a lockout-shortened 2011-12 campaign.


“I would like to personally thank Paul for everything he has done for this team under some pretty unique circumstances,” Higgins said in a statement. “His basketball experience as a coach and a player speak for themselves. We have been fortunate to have someone of his character associated with this franchise and we hope he will continue to be a valuable resource to us in the future.”


The Bobcats went 32-88 (.363) under Silas, who has been an NBA coach for 11 seasons. His career record of 377-531 was compiled with the Los Angeles Clippers (1980-83), Charlotte/New Orleans Hornets (1999-2003), Cleveland (2003-05) and Bobcats.
