Hornets Coach Steve Clifford Takes Indefinite Medical Leave

The Charlotte Hornets announced Wednesday that Steve Clifford would be away from the team "for the immediate future" for health-related reasons. When Clifford didn't show up for Monday's shootaround, Silas had a feeling something was amiss.

Clifford, 56, didn't coach in the team's 104-94 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday evening and wasn't at the team's Tuesday practice, either, per Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

"Currently, there is no timetable for his return", the team said in its statement.

Following the completion of the transaction, the director now directly owns 8,131 shares in the company, valued at $4,756,309.76. Autozone, Inc is a retailer and distributor of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the United States.

Associate head coach Stephen Silas is serving as acting head coach in Clifford's absence.

However, they have not done so thus far, as they have gotten off to a disappointing 9-13 start and have lost four of their last five games. In his first season, he missed some time after experiencing chest pains. The team said at the time that he was absent due to an illness.

Good thoughts to Steve Clifford, a delightful guy, an absolute grinder, and a coach always willing to talk the nitty-gritty stuff.
