Steve Clifford agrees to return as Charlotte's head coach

Steve Clifford has agreed to a deal to return as the Charlotte Hornets’ head coach, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Evidently there were no hard feelings between the Hornets and Clifford. During his last stint in Charlotte, he led the team to the playoffs just twice (and they lost in the first round both times). 

During his five seasons as Charlotte's head coach, Clifford had a 196-214 record (and a .478 winning percentage). After leaving the Hornets in 2018, he became the head coach of the Orlando Magic, where he was 96-131. Clifford's all-time record as a head coach is 292-345 (.458).

The Hornets previously wanted to hire Kenny Atkinson, but he shocked everyone and changed his mind, opting to stay with the Golden State Warriors as an assistant coach after the team won this year's NBA championship.

It seemed like the Hornets might hire Mike D'Antoni, who was the other finalist when they decided on Atkinson. However, after D'Antoni met with Charlotte owner Michael Jordan last week, the Hornets opted to go in a different direction and bring back Clifford.
