BROOKLYN - The Brooklyn Nets are searching for a new head coach after they lost to the Chicago Bulls in Game 7 of the playoffs last night.

Billy King, the team's general manager, says the Nets will not offer a new contract to interim coach P.J. Carlesimo.

"The Brooklyn Nets organization would like to thank P.J. for his efforts with the team in his roles as both head coach and assistant, and for his contributions to the team's success both on and off the court.  We wish P.J. and his family only the best in the years to come," the team said in a statement.
Carlesimo was named interim head coach of the Brooklyn Nets on December 27, 2012 and led the Nets to a 35-19 record in the final 54 games of the season.
