Another day, another NBA head coach gets the boot. Doc Rivers’ tenure as the Philadelphia 76ers’ head coach is over. The Sixers on Tuesday fired Rivers after a crushing Game 7 loss to the Celtics and another second-round exit.

Rivers took over as the Sixers’ head coach in October 2020.

The Sixers had their best regular season in over 20 years and finished with a 54-28 record to secure the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Philadelphia 76ers head coach Doc Rivers, center, has been fired.

“Doc is one of the most successful coaches in NBA history, a future Hall of Famer, and someone I respect immensely,” Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey said in a statement

t. “We’re grateful for all he did in his three seasons here and thank him for the important impact he made on our franchise.

“After having the chance to reflect upon our season, we decided that certain changes are necessary to further our goals of competing for a championship.”

The Sixers went 154-82 in three seasons with Rivers as their head coach but lost in the semifinals three straight years.
