The Phoenix Suns have fired coach Jeff Hornacek, with the team mired in one of the worst stretches in franchise history.
The Suns announced the dismissal on Monday, saying an interim coach would be in place by Tuesday.
Hornacek coached the Suns for two-and-a-half seasons. His team had lost 10 of 11 games and 19 of its last 21. At 14-35, their record is tied for fourth worst in the NBA.
