Source: Sixers’ Doug Collins to Resign
Philadelphia 76ers Head Coach Doug Collins has informed ownership that he will resign at season’s end, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Collins, 62, has one year left on a four-year deal, but has told management he won’t return to the sidelines. 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.
