Rob Grabowski-US PRESSWIRE

The Associated Press reports that Connecticut Sun head coach Mike Thibault and his assistant coaches have been fired.

Not much to say yet, but the Associated Press is reporting that Mike Thibault, the head coach of the Connecticut Sun, has just been fired. His assistant coaches - Scott Hawk and Bernadette Maddox - have also been released.

Hoopfeed.com reports the following statement from Connecticut Sun Vice President and GM Chris Sienko:

“The decision to let Mike go was difficult based on our friendship and working relationship. Mike has had much success here in Connecticut over the past ten seasons. However, we felt it was time for a new voice and new direction for our players and our fans as we continue to try to capture that first, elusive title. We wish Mike and his family nothing but success and know our paths will cross again in the future.”

According to Hoopfeed, the Sun organization will begin interviewing coaching candidates immediately, but there is no timetable set for a new hire.
