Doug Collins Quits: Woj Reports Sixers Coach Won't Return

I just had to use this picture again. - USA TODAY Sports

THIS IS NEWS YOU GUYS

HOLY MONKEY the offseason has officially begun. Doug Collins, coach of the Philadelphia 76ers and reported Smartest Basketball Person Ever according to the xenophobic masses, will evidently not be coaching the Sixers next season. It's Woj, obviously.

Collins, 62, has one year left on a four-year deal, but has told management he won't return in that job. Collins' possible return to the franchise in another role – perhaps in the front office – hasn't been ruled out, a source said.

Ownership wanted him to return for the final season of a contract that would've paid him $4.5 million, one source said, but Collins informed owner Josh Harris of his decision to leave in recent days.

We'll have lots and lots and lots and lots of reactions in the coming days, but for now, this is good news to some of us and bad news to others. Doug was not a great coach, nor was he a bad coach, but we've had him for three years, and I appreciate what he tried to do for the franchise.

That being said, POUR ONE OUT FOR YOUR ALL YOUR LONG TWO HOMIES.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
