Cheeks is gone!!!

31

Wow. Let's soak this in. Update: Here are my initial thoughts. This is a change that had to be made. We've all been calling for it, here on this blog and in other blogs. The big topic of the year has been "Fire Mo Cheeks!" Well the day has finally arrived. How do I feel about Tony DiLeo being named the interim head coach? Let's just hope the would interim really means interim. Here's the quote straight from the ESPN article: "Assistant general manager Tony DiLeo will be the interim head coach for the remainder of the season, the sources said." I'm not sure if I'm a huge fan of DiLeo being the coach for the rest of the season, but at this point I'll take what I can get. I assume DiLeo, being the assistant GM and all, is pretty close to Stefanski and is on the same page. And let's not forget, Stefanski was the one pushing for the young guys to play last season, which leads me to believe the coaching change will benefit the young guys like Thad, Lou and Speights. Stefanski obviously has a plan and I wouldn't be surprised if he has a coach waiting in the wings and/or roster changes on the way. Stefanski's a bright guy, he realized what we have wasn't working and is moving to plan B. I'm sure there will be more to come later, until then celebrate Sixers fans. You got what you wanted.
