HEAT Demoting Two Long-Time Assistant Coaches

Bob Mcadoo

Not sure if this has anything to do with LeBron leaving, but according to WOJO the HEAT will be shuffling some of their assistant coaches.

Ron Rothstein and Bob McAdoo will no longer play significant roles on head coach Erik Spoelstra’s staff – and could be completely off the bench, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Those changes will clear the way for Juwan Howard to be promoted from his role in player development, league sources said.

It is immediately unclear what role Rothstein and McAdoo will have in the organization, but both are expected to continue to have jobs with the Heat, league sources said. Heat president Pat Riley and Spoelstra have long professional and personal ties with both men.

Heat assistant coach David Fizdale has ascended to the top assistant role under Spoelstra in recent years and will continue working closely with the head coach.

People forget that Coach Spo got the HEAT to the playoffs with a more limited roster than he has now. I expect the HEAT to be very competitive next year.
