Granted you’re not a total f–k up, it’s pretty easy to get another job in pro sports once you’re already in there.  The coaching business in professional sports is like a game of musical chairs with everyone moving around until there’s no spots left.  Dave Joerger and the Memphis Grizzlies parted ways after he reportedly was seeking permission to interview with other teams for the second time in three years.  The Kings were among those teams and things progressed quickly after he was fired.

The Kings flew Joerger and his family to Northern California so he could meet with Kings vice president of basketball operations Vlade Divac.

Joerger and the Kings reportedly agreed to a three-year, $12 million contract that includes a team option for a fourth season that could make the contract worth $16 million, sources said.

He will also have autonomy to hire his assistant coaching staff but there is doubt he will bring over members from the Grizzlies staff.

In three seasons as head coach, Joerger was 147-99 (.598) and 9-13 in the playoffs. The Grizzlies reached the conference semifinals in 2015, losing to the eventual champion Golden State Warriors. Joerger spent 10 years in the minor leagues as a coach before reaching the NBA as a Memphis assistant in 2007.
