The Charlotte Hornets are parting ways with head coach James Borrego after four seasons, ESPN reported Friday.
The reported move comes mere months after Borrego signed a multi-year contract extension in August.
The Hornets posted a 43-39 record in 2021-22 and reached the NBA’s play-in tournament for the second straight season. The team, however, lost the first play-in game each time in its bid to secure its first playoff berth since the 2015-16 campaign.
Charlotte, however, has shown improvement by increasing its win total by 10 in each of the last two seasons.
Borrego, 44, owns a 138-163 coaching record in 301 career games with the Hornets. He also had a 10-20 record in a brief stint as the head coach of the Orlando Magic in 2014-15.
Borrego also served as an assistant coach with the-then New Orleans Hornets (2010-12), Magic (2012-15) and San Antonio Spurs (2015-18).
