Clippers, Schuler Meet for 7 Hours, but No Decision
No decisions were made after Clipper officials met with Mike Schuler for approximately seven hours Wednesday about the team’s vacant coaching position, but General Manager Elgin Baylor said he expected the matter to be resolved soon.
“I had a long conversation with Mike and the owner (Donald T. Sterling),” Baylor said. “It went very well, but nothing was decided.
“But I will tell you this. A decision will be made no later than next week.”
Don Casey, the interim coach since Jan. 19, and Schuler, who spent 2 1/2 seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers before being fired Feb. 18, are the only candidates to be interviewed. No further meetings with Schuler have been planned.
Schuler, who finished the 1988-89 season as a scout with the Golden State Warriors, returned to his Bay Area home Wednesday night and could not be reached for comment.
