Mike Brown Likely Next Warriors Head Coach, ESPN's Ric Bucher Reports

All signs point to Mike Brown being the Golden State Warriors next head coach, ESPN's Ric Bucher reported today in his weekly Friday chat.

Lakers assistant coaches Chuck Person and Brian Shaw "are serious about getting the job and will be interviewed. But all signs point to Mike Brown being the Warriors next head coach," Bucher wrote in response to a question from one of his readers.

Brown was the 2008-09 NBA Coach of the Year andcoached the Cleveland Cavaliers to 272-138 record over the course of five seasons, but was let go prior to last season and became an analyst for ESPN.

Brown's resume looks pretty solid, but it must say something that he was able to get a LeBron James led team to the NBA Finals just once in five seasons and reached the Eastern Conference Finals just one other season despite advancing to the NBA Playoffs each year as head coach.

Prior to his job with the Cavs, Brown's only NBA head coaching experience, the 41-year-old was an assistant with the Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs.
