Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown
will start with a new group of assistants.
Brown, introduced Wednesday as the new boss with the Sixers, decided to part
ways with Michael Curry, Aaron McKie and Jeff Capel -- all holdovers from Doug
"This decision takes nothing away from the talent and loyalty of Michael
Curry, Aaron McKie and Jeff Capel, but is more about making a fresh start here
in Philadelphia," said Brown. "I respect the way this staff did their job and
how they handled themselves with tremendous class and professionalism, which
needs to be acknowledged. I am grateful for all the work they've done this
offseason leading up to this decision."
Curry was interviewed for the head coaching vacancy, which was created by
Collins' resignation in April.
