The Sacramento Kings have hired David Joerger as their new head coach. The 42-year-old was fired just two days ago by the Memphis Grizzlies. Joerger is the Kings' ninth head coach the past 10 seasons.
George Karl was fired April 14 after less than two years as the Kings head coach. The former Milwaukee Bucks and Denver Nuggets coach had a 44-67 record over parts of two seasons at the helm.
Before Karl, Tyrone Corbin was the Kings interim coach after the surprise firing of Mike Malone. Corbin only coached for 28 games, putting up a 7-21 record, before being replaced by Karl during the 2014-15 season.
Mike Malone was the first of three head coaches for the Sacramento Kings during the 2014-15 season. Hired in June 2013, Malone was let go just 24 games into the 2014-15 season. He boasted a 39-67 record as head coach.
Before Tyrone Corbin, there was Keith Smart. He took over during the early part of the 2011-12 season, but didn't have much success. He was fired in May 2013, after a 48-93 record over two seasons.
Paul Westphal was head coach of the Kings from 2009-12. He was fired in Jan. 2012 after a 51-120 record. Since 2006, he has been the Kings longest-tenured coach, and only one to last more than two full seasons.
Before Westphal, Kenny Natt was at the helm for just 58 games during the 2008-09 season. He was fired after posting an 11-47 record, en route to a league-worst 17-65 record.
Reggie Theus took over as head coach of the Kings in 2007, after making the jump from coaching the collegiate level to the pros. He was fired in Dec. 2008 after a 6-18 start to the 2008-09 season.
Eric Musselman had some tough shoes to fill after Rick Adelman left the Kings following the 2005-06 season. He didn't live up to expectations, and was fired after just one 33-49 campaign. Since Adelman left, the Kings haven't made the playoffs.
