Today the Sacramento Kings made official what many had been expecting by firing coach Kenny Natt.

Natt took over as interim head coach early in the season when the team fired Reggie Theus.

Natt went 11-47 as head of the Kings, who finished with a 17-65 record. The Kings showed little improvement under his lead.

Never thought to be in the team's long term plans, Natt was let go along with assistants coaches Rex Kalamian, Jason Hamm, Randy Brown, and Bubba Burrage.

The team will immediately begin the search for a new head coach.

Thought to be in the running are former Kings and Wizards coach Eddie Jordan and TNT analyst and former coach Mike Fratello.
