Warriors Fire Darren Erman As Assistant Coach For Violation Of Company Policy
The Golden State Warriors have fired Darren Erman due to a violation of company policy.
Erman coached the Warriors' Summer League team last July.
Bob Myers declined to specify what occurred except indicating that it was a serious violation.
“Something like this needed to be discussed with general counsel, (human resources), as we would with any other employee. It took a couple days to go through the proper channels,” Myers said.
“We were unaware, and when made aware, forced to act."
“He made a mistake,” Mark Jackson said of Erman. “He owns it. He’s done a lot for me, he’s done a lot for this organization, and I’m pulling for him to make a comeback. I’m pulling for him to move on and become a great coach, and I believe that that can happen.
“It’s just tough. I’m pulling for him. The right decision was made, and we move forward, but certainly I’m pulling for him to bounce back and get back on the road that he was on.”
Mark Jackson and David Aldridge have reported that the firing is in no way related to the reassignment of Brian Scalabrine.
