The St. John’s University Assistant Coach Mike Dunlap has been chosen by the Charlotte Bobcats to take over head coaching duties for the NBA’s worst team, record wise. This Is both a great pick up for the Bobcats and a big loss for the Johnnies. After head coach Steve Lavin’s announced illness, Dunlap had been doing most of the coaching for the St. Johns Men’s Basketball Team. St John’s is going to truly feel the effects of the departure of such a great coach.

Hopefully Dunlap can step in and get the Kimba Walker led Bobcats ready for the 2012-13 NBA season and improve on that horrific record. Dunlap spent most of his more than 30 year coaching career on the collegiate level but feels he has what it takes to be a great NBA coach.

Steve Lavin had nothing but good words for Dunlap, “The Johnnies basketball family is ecstatic for Coach Dunlap’s opportunity. Mike’s selection as the Charlotte Bobcat’s head coach is a well deserved honor.”

Mike Dunlap is scheduled to replace Paul Silas whose contract was not renewed after his team finished 7-59 for the 66-game shortened season.
