Bill Laimbeer to Leave Shock

According to Mel Greenberg at - a man who's about as knowledgable about women's hoops as you can get, being a member of the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame - Bill Laimbeer is about to leave his job with the Shock. Expect an announcement from the Shock front office (both of them) at 3 pm Eastern Time.

He will be replaced by his assistant coach Rick Mahorn.

The big question: does Bill have something lined up after this, perhaps in the NBA? If he does, the mystery is solved. If he doesn't, expect a metric ton of speculation to ensue.

I am stunned. I kinda thought he was a "fixture" with Detroit, and hey, maybe he still is but for the Pistons.

I'm actually sad to see him go - well, if he is totally out of the WNBA, anyway.

I think he is ditching becuase he knows this year is going to be ugly and he wants to pursue NBA jobs.
