Darren Emran was fired from his role as assistant coach of the Golden State Warriors on April 5, with the exact reason for his dismissal unclear.

The franchise originally cited "a violation of company policy", but now reports have revealed the true extent of Emran's misdemeanour.

According to ESPN, Mark Jackson's second assistant was caught secretly recording team conversations involving both the coaching staff and the Warriors roster:

"He was taping everything.

"Taping pre game speeches wouldn't have been that bad, but he was taping guys just sitting around talking in the coaches' office," one source told ESPN.

Emran is believed to have used his phone to record such conversations, with the coach sometimes involved in the conversations, and sometimes simply leaving behind his equipment so that those being recorded believed they were in privacy.

It is not yet clear exactly why Emran was recording such intimate conversations, but doing so without permission certainly seems a legitimate reason for relieving him of his duties.

The Warriors meanwhile are preparing for Game Five of their playoff series with another troubled team, the LA Clippers.

The first round series is currently tied at 2-2.
