"I would like to personally thank Paul for everything he has done for this team under some pretty unique circumstances," Higgins said. "His basketball experience as a coach and a player speak for themselves. We have been fortunate to have someone of his character associated with this franchise and we hope he will continue to be a valuable resource to us in the future."

Under Silas' leadership this season, the Bobcats went 7-59, setting an NBA record for worst winning percentage ever at .106.

Silas had originally taken over the job on an interim basis on Dec. 22, 2010, replacing the fired Larry Brown; the interim title was removed on Feb. 16, 2011.

Silas has a career record of 377-531 in 11 seasons as an NBA head coach. In addition to the Bobcats, he's coached the Cleveland Cavaliers, Charlotte Hornets and Los Angeles Clippers.
