Vinny Del Negro and George Karl

The Sacramento Kings turned many heads as they fired their head coach Michael Malone on Sunday. Tyrone Corbin has taken over as interim head coach.

Corbin will be holding the position as head coach till seasons end, but it doesn’t seem likely that he’ll be coaching this team beyond this season.

Ardian Wojonarowski of Yahoo! Sports tweeted this out Sunday Night:

The firing of Malone comes at a very unexpected time, as the Kings are only a half game out of eighth seed in the Western Conference.

Karl seems like an intriguing candidate. He worked with General Manager Pete D’Alessandro when he was in the Denver Nuggets front office.

George Karl has made fun of the situation so far by tweeting this out Sunday:
