The Oklahoma City Thunder have fired head coach Scott Brooks.

On April 16, Adrian Wojnarowski reported sources around the league believe Brooks is in danger after the Thunder missed the playoffs. He also noted a popular college coach could become the leading candidate if the team decides to go in another direction:

If a change comes, University of Florida coach Billy Donovan could emerge as a serious candidate to coach Oklahoma City, league sources said. [Thunder general manager Sam] Presti has a longstanding friendship with Donovan, a two-time national championship coach who has been open about his interest in moving to the NBA.
