Two longtime assistant coaches with the Miami Heat are set to be reassigned by the team according to a report from Yahoo.
Ron Rothstein has been on the bench since 2004 while Bob McAdoo has held a seat since 1995. The two coaches are respected and have been present in many big moments in franchise history including all three NBA titles.
Rothstein's decade long stint as an assistant coach is actually his second journey with the Heat. He was the first head coach in franchise history back in 1988. He would onto that role until 1991 before moving on to the Detroit Pistons.
McAdoo has only held one coaching job in his career and it is this one with Miami. He retired as a player after finishing his career in Italy. Before playing overseas, McAdoo enjoyed an exceptional playing career and is a member of the Hall of Fame.
The two men are expected to continue to remain members in the organization according to the report but their new roles are thus far unknown.
With these two coaches seemingly headed off the bench, Juwan Howard could see an increased role on the coaching staff. Last season Howard was seated behind the Heat bench in his first year as an assistance. It's possible he could find himself seated next to head coach Erik Spoelstra next season.
The Heat will open up their 2014-15 regular season on October 29th against the Washington Wizards.
