Clifford is in his fifth season as Hornets' head coach, with a 169-181 record and two playoff appearances (9-13 record so far this season). He missed some time in his first season after experiencing chest pains.

I met Coach Clifford randomly on a plane once, was a row behind him and he still turned around and chatted about the National Basketball Association for 15 minutes with me and I'm a nobody. Today I spent a lot more time delving into the stats, delving into our team, and being prepared for late-game situations.

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