Hornets Coach Steve Clifford Takes Indefinite Leave To Address Health
Dec 06 2017 by Marjorie Miles
Charlotte Hornets coach Steve Clifford is taking a leave of absence "for the immediate future" to address his health, the team said in a statement Wednesday. Today I spent a lot more time delving into the stats, delving into our team, and being prepared for late-game situations. Out of respect for his privacy, the organization did not comment further on his condition.
Clifford has served as the head coach of the Hornets since the 2013-14 season, leading the team to a 169-181 record and two postseason appearances. They did not give a timetable for his return.

On a lighter note, PM Modi said that the Congress' claim to victory will fizzle out just like the Cyclone Okhai has. PM Modi's Surat rally, which was earlier scheduled for Wednesday, has been postponed by a day.
Clifford missed Monday's game against the Orlando Magic, which the team won 104-94 with Silas at the helm.
Silas joined the Hornets as a scout in 1999 when his father, Paul, was head coach. The team is 9-13 this season, 11th place in the Eastern Conference. The Hornets return to action tonight at Spectrum Center in Charlotte against the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors.
