I stumbled onto this thread( as I clearly had trouble sleeping) and am surprised to realize he only has coached there for 3 years(I thought it was longer).

Has a coach ever been fired immediately after winning the Finals? I just wonder how good the Bucks could be with a competent coach.

One of the more infamous ones was Jimmy Johnson getting shown the door after two straight Super Bowls with the Cowboys.

To me, Paul Westhead's mid-season (81-82) firing from our favorite club comes awfully close to meeting the "fired after championship)"standard. He'd been awarded the Lakers' HC position following HC McKinney's injury, and the Lakers famously won the championship in his first season. It was magical.

But the club got eliminated in Westhead's first full season the following year. In a short but tight three game playoff series, Magic Johnson's play featured some lousy perimeter shooting and he became the too visible deciding factor in each game. Westhead would bear more blame however and would be fired quickly mid-season the following year, a move attributed to Magic's displeasure with the coaching effort. It would take Westhead's replacement (Riley) two and a half seasons at the helm (82, 83, 84) before his own work produced another NBA title the following year in 1985.

The problems weren't all strictly Westhead-related after all. Magic's playoff shooting form improved gradually. Injuries and roster shortcomings at PF (Rambis) delayed James Worthy's rise to his eventual prominence as a wing. Nixon was traded for what would become the Byron Scott pick, a move that brought the type of outside shooting threat the club would need as Jamaal's career faded precipitously following his injury and illness in the early '85 season.

If I'm not mistaken, the reason that happened was because he started to have beef with Jerry Jones, not because something was wrong with his coaching. Jerry Jones isn't exactly the most knowledgeable or logical owner/executive in the NFL.
