While there were no indications that McLellan would not be back for a fifth season in San Jose, there was no public announcement until Monday. McLellan said he could be making changes to his staff and had a list of potential assistants he wanted to talk to.

Wilson said the major change he wanted from the team was going from one that was ``passive and reactive'' to one that would be ``aggressive and proactive'' next season.
