Wizards Fire Flip Saunders after 2-15 start. January 24, 2012 19:03

It is being reported on Yahoo! Sports that the Washington Wizards have fired their head coach, Flip Saunders, after the team started this season with only 2 wins from its first 17 games.

It's thought the Wizards are planning to ask assistant coach Randy Wittman if he'll take the helm after Flip's departure, but no agreement has yet been met.

Saunders has spent three seasons with the Wizards, with not much success, leading the team to a collective record of 51-111. He still holds a career record of 638-526, over 15 years, with three different teams.
