Gentry took over the Suns on an interim basis in the middle of the 2008-2009 season after Terry Porter was fired. Gentry had previously been an assistant coach under Porter as well as Mike D'Antoni, the man Porter succeeded in the post. Gentry's firing ends an 11 year relationship with the Suns organization, having been hired as D'Antoni's assistant in 2002.

The Suns have struggled mightily under Gentry this season, going 13-28, good for last place in the Pacific Division.
