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.
