Raptors fire championship-winning head coach

Apr 21, 2023

Nick Nurse, who led Toronto to the 2019 NBA championship, is no longer the Raptors head coach.

Nurse was fired by the organization on Friday, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

Toronto went 41-41 during the 2022-23 NBA season, missing the playoffs after losing to the Chicago Bulls in the NBA’s play-in tournament.

Former Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka is expected to be a serious candidate to replace Nurse, according to ESPN, while Nurse is expected to draw interest from the Houston Rockets for its head coaching vacancy.
