Mike Dunlap has left the college ranks to take the job of the Charlotte Bobcats.
Dulap has left the St. John’s Red Storm, where he was the top assistant under Steve Lavin’s coaching staff, for an NBA team coming off of the worst season in NBA history. This is his first head coaching job in the NBA, too.
He was offered the position Monday night, which he accepted. He replaced Paul Silas, who was fired from the position in April, almost immediately after the season ended.
The Bobcats lost the final 23 games of last season and went 7-for-59. They had a .106 winning percentage.
The Bobcats are expected to take Thomas Robinson with the No. 2 pick in next week’s draft.
He previously has NBA assistant coaching experience with the Denver Nuggets.
