Found April 14, 2013 on Next Impulse Sports:
Philadelphia 76ers coach Doug Collins has let ownership know that he will be resigning at the end of the season, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.  The move definitely doesn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone.  The Sixers will miss out on the playoffs as they are 33-47 and ninth in the East.  The season never shaped up to what hopes were, especially in light of Andrew Bynum not even playing a minute. According to Yahoo! Sports: Collins, 62, has one year left on a four-year deal, but has told management he won’t return in that job. Collins’ possible return to the franchise in another role – perhaps in the front office – hasn’t been ruled out, a source said. Ownership wanted him to return for the final season of a contract that would’ve paid him $4.5 million, one source said, but Collins informed owner Josh Harris of his decision to leave in recent days.
