Pistons won’t bring back assistant coach Pat Sullivan


Matt Dery of 97.1 The Ticket (via Matt Watson):

#Pistons staff nearly complete. Pat Sullivan will not be back. A great young coach who will be an asset to any NBA staff. Will be missed.

Well, that updates Vincent Goodwill’s report from earlier that Sullivan and Brian Hill were still in the running for assistant gigs. As Watson pointed out, Sullivan seems like a fine coach, but he has been a fixture in Detroit under three coaching regimes, so it might be the right time to start fresh, even if Sullivan has worked for Frank in the past. No word yet on Hill’s fate.
