2012 Mike Dunlap

Dunlap was hired as the fifth head coach in the franchise's history in mid-2012 and posted an overall record of 21-61 as the Bobcats missed the playoffs for a third consecutive season.

"(We) conducted our season-ending review and met with coach Dunlap to reflect on this season," Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins said in a statement. "As an organization, it was decided that we needed to make a change with the head coach position."
