Los Angeles Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak announced today that head coach Mike D'Antoni has resigned from his position at the Lakers franchise.

Kupchak also confirmed following the recognition of D'Antoni that there was no current timetable in place to search for the replacement at the head coach position.

D'Antoni joined the Lakers in November 2012 having replaced Mike Brown, who is the current Cleveland Cavaliers head coach. D'Antoni had two full seasons with the Lakers franchise and posted a record of 67-87 over those two years.

Kupchak released a statement regarding the matter: "Given the circumstances, I don’t know that anybody could have done a better job than Mike did the past two seasons, On behalf of the Lakers, we thank Mike for the work ethic, professionalism and positive attitude that he brought to the team every day. We wish him the best of luck.”

The Lakers are coming off their worst season performance since the team moved to Los Angeles, they are still without Kobe Bryant who is recovering from injury and now are head coach-less, things are looking dim in Hollywood.
