Report: Blazers fire Coach Nate McMillan

Nate McMillan has been fired by the Blazers, according to a source. McMillan has been the head coach of the Blazers since the 05-06 season.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Right or wrong, fair or not, Nate McMillan’s time was up.

Reports out of Portland had the players tuning-out McMillan, which eventually happens to every coach. So the Blazers, who started rebuilding today with several trades, fired their longtime coach.

It’s worth noting, McMillan held the Blazers together -even though Greg Oden has been a bust and Brandon Roy’s career fell apart due to injuries.

McMilllan, an elite sideline boss, will get another gig this summer.
