Bickerstaff Won’t Return As Bobcat Coach

While he will be invited to stay with the organization, Bernie Bickerstaff will not return as coach of the Charlotte Bobcats next season.

Michael Jordan said Tuesday that Bickerstaff, who also serves as general manager, will finish the season and remains an “integral part” of the franchise.

“I don’t see him distancing himself away,” Jordan said. “I feel he’s been an important part to getting this franchise to where it is now. It will give me the most pleasure to continue that process until we get to where we have to go.”
