It looks like Quin Snyder might be out of the running in Charlotte.
The former Missouri head coach and current Los Angeles Lakers assistant was rumored a favorite to fill the lead man vacancy for the NBA’s Bobcats, according to a story posted Thursday on SI.com.
However, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer, citing an unnamed source, reported Monday night that the Bobcats have hired St. John’s assistant Mike Dunlap.
CBSSports.com is also confirming the hire, but does not name a source.
ESPN.com reported June 12 that the search was down to Snyder, former Utah Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan, and Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw.
Snyder resigned from Missouri in February 2006. His final three years with Missouri were tumultuous.
The coach resurfaced in basketball in June 2007 when he accepted a position with the NBA D-League Austin Toros.
He made his NBA debut as an assistant with the Philadelphia 76ers in 2010.
In 2011, he was hired on as a Lakers assistant.
