    Default Jay Triano out.

    Toronto Raptors President and General Manager Bryan Colangelo announced Wednesday the club will not exercise its option on head coach Jay Triano for the 2011-12 season. Triano will be retained as a consultant to the basketball team as a special assistant to the president and general manager.

    The search for a new head coach will commence immediately. There is no definitive timetable for the completion of the search process.

    “I have great respect for Jay Triano both as a person and as a basketball mind,” said Colangelo. “Jay deserves tremendous credit for developing our young players this past season and our most recent win-loss record does not appropriately reflect his many positive contributions to this organization.

    “This was a difficult decision to make, but after almost three full seasons of observation and evaluation I believe that bringing in a new voice as head coach will accelerate the progress we are looking to make in the coming years.

    “I am very pleased that Jay has agreed to stay on and help see through the plan that we have designed and initiated together.”

    “I am grateful to the organization for the opportunity to be a head coach in the NBA,” said Triano. “I am proud of the work that I and the coaching staff have done with our young players and feel confident we have laid the foundation for a team that will continue to improve. I look forward in assisting Bryan to deliver a championship team to Toronto.”

    Triano was promoted to head coach and signed to a three-year contract May 11, 2009. He finished with an 87-142 record (.380).

    Triano served as an assistant to three coaches before being named interim head coach December 3, 2008 following the dismissal of Sam Mitchell.

    A native of Niagara Falls, Canada, Triano became the first Canadian born and Canadian trained coach in the NBA when he joined Lenny Wilkens’ staff for the 2002-03 season.

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

    He's smart, the players like him and are responding to him. There is no reason to switch. All this is going to do is delay the rebuild.

    I'm really interested as to who will replace Jay. Maybe Colangelo will break his habit and hire a coach who's established. Maybe a defensive minded coach (not necessarily Van Gundy.. maybe Mike Woodson?)

    Phil Jackson.

    Michael Jordan -> Kobe Bryant -> DeMar DeRozan

    History in the making.

    On a more serious note, Adelman would be a dream.

    I find that very interesting. So will Jay now be an assistant? Either way, this can only be good. We don't lose Jay's x's and o's and keeping him around will also likely help some of the young players develop. We can now also get an established defense first head coach. Stan Van Gundy maybe? Adelman would be great too.

    I don't think he meant assistant coach. More like assistant to the regional manager, err, general manager.

    I am indifferent until I see his successor. If it's PJ, I don't see an improvement. If it's JVG or Adelman, then we have to see some hope. This team has to go from a team with promise to a group of overachievers. There is decent, but not overwhelming skill on this squad. Colangelo continues to make moves, let's see what he comes up with through FA, draft and this coaching search. The summer just got far more interesting.

    BC better have somebody lined up and that somebody better be a baller. JVG or Aldelman would be sweet. Maybe even try to coax Sloan out of retirement? anyway it better be big! NO to PJ!

    This should have happened a month ago. MLSE has held everything up.

    Yes, now we don't have to see a coach who rewards bad defense with playing time, hopefully.

    Colangelo: Assistant coach PJ Carlesimo will not be considered a candidate for the head coaching position.

    Some of the players in NYC aren't happy with Mike. Don't be surprised if he leaves. I wouldn't be surprised if Colangelo requested the right to talk with him.
