- Associated Press - Monday, June 18, 2012

A person familiar with the decision says the Charlotte Bobcats have hired St. John’s assistant Mike Dunlap to be their new head coach.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because an official announcement was still being planned for the next two days.

The Charlotte Observer first reported the news.

The news comes as a bit of a surprise because Dunlap was not one of the team’s three finalists. He was originally one of the 10 candidates to interview for the job, but the team trimmed the list to former Utah coach Jerry Sloan, Indiana assistant coach Brian Shaw and Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Quin Snyder.

Dunlap will replace Paul Silas, who was let go after Charlotte had the worst winning percentage in NBA history this past season.
