Bobcats Coaching Search: Patrick Ewing Will Interview On Friday

The Charlotte Bobcats are just starting their search for a new head coach, and one of the names that everyone expected will be coming in for an interview on Friday. According to ESPN Florida, Pattrick Ewing will interview with the club today, but friend Michael Jordan won't be part of the process.

The people say Charlotte will interview Memphis assistant Dave Joerger on Friday. The people spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the team hasn’t publicly announced its list of candidates.

Bobcats owner Michael Jordan is friends with Ewing, but is not expected to sit in on the interview. General manager Rich Cho and president of basketball operations Rod Higgins have handled interviews so far.

Those "people" are sources that are familiar with the situation. Ewing has been an assistant with the Magic for the past few years, ad his transition to being the head man is expected to be a fairly smooth one.
