Charlotte, N.C. • The Charlotte Bobcats say they've fired coach Mike Dunlap after just one season.

The Bobcats went 21-61 under Dunlap, finishing with the second-worst record in the NBA ahead of only the Orlando Magic. Charlotte won just seven games in the strike-shortened 2011-12 season but more wins weren't enough to save Dunlap's job.

Dunlap was hired last summer after working as an assistant coach at St. John's.

The move means the Bobcats will have a third head coach in as many seasons as owner Michael Jordan continues to look for what he feels is the right person for the job.

Dunlap replaced Paul Silias, who was fired after the Bobcats went 7-59 in 2011-12, the worst winning percentage in NBA history (.106).
