Dwane Casey, Detroit Pistons agree to 5-year deal

Casey, 61, was voted "Coach of the Year" by his fellow National Basketball Association coaches after leading Toronto to an Eastern Conference-best 59-23 record, the best mark in franchise history, but he was relieved of his duties shortly after another embarrassing four-game sweep at the hands of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Detroit's playoff appearance in 2015-16 was their only one since 2008-09 when they were bounced in the first round by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The NBA coach of the year finalist was sacked shortly after Toronto was swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers with one year remaining on a three-year, $18 million dollar extension.

This led to Casey getting fired, even after being awarded Coach of the Year by his peers. My thoughts on Casey and the team moving forward in the video above! He was 320-238 in seven seasons and is Toronto's winningest coach.

He coached the Minnesota Timberwolves for a little more than one season, going 53-69.

Dallas posted a 162-84 (.659) mark during that span, winning 50 or more games in each of his three seasons with the team. His teams qualified for the playoffs in 11 of those 14 seasons.

Casey, 61, agreed to a five-year contract Monday worth a reported $35 million. During his junior season, the Wildcats amassed 30-2 record and captured the 1978 NCAA Championship.

Casey earned a degree in business administration in 1979.
