MIAMI (AP) -Pat Riley's worst season as coach of the Miami Heat will be his last.
A person close to Riley says the Hall of Famer will resign Monday afternoon as the Heat's coach, but will remain team president. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because a formal announcement had yet to be made.
As team president, Riley will continue to oversee a plan to halt the team's dramatic fall after it won the NBA championship in 2006. The Heat finished this season with the NBA's worst record - 15-67.
It's believed Riley could name his replacement Monday. He has been grooming longtime assistant Erik Spoelstra for the job. That would follow the path Riley took when promoting Stan Van Gundy previously.
