Clipper news: Coaching search update

July 5, 2010 |  4:03 pm

Time for Round 2 of the interviews ...

The Clippers are bringing in finalists Dwane Casey and Vinny Del Negro Tuesday for another series of interviews for their coaching vacancy, a team official told The Times.

Previously, the thought had been to have them in on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. But the process is being condensed into one day.

Casey, an assistant coach with the Mavericks, had been considered the front-runner by a wide margin. But Del Negro, former head coach of the Bulls, closed the gap with a strong presentation when he was in Los Angeles for his first interview.
