The Portland Trail Blazers fired coach Maurice Cheeks Wednesday, as the team dropped further out of playoff contention with losses in seven of its last nine games.

Kevin Pritchard, Portland's director of player personnel, will be Portland's interim coach.

It has been rumored that Cheeks was on the way out for several months, although it was thought that because he wasn't fired by the All-Star break he would serve out the rest of the season.

But the team continued to slide, losing seven of their last nine games, including a 103-93 loss to the Detroit Pistons Tuesday night.

The Blazers (22-33) were in 12th place in the Western Conference, six games back of the Los Angeles Lakers for the eighth and final playoff spot.

The Blazers went 41-41 last season, missing the playoffs for the first time in 22 seasons.

I'll always remember him as the guy who saved that poor girl who forgot the words to the national anthem before a game.

I hope this isn't a thread jack, but it is related to the Kentucky job. Speculation around here (Texas) is that Billy Gillespie is headed to Arkansas. But, I haven't seen anything firm about it yet.
