HOUSTON -- The Houston Rockets fired coach Jeff Van Gundy today.

The N-B-A club went 52-and-30 during the regular season. He got
the club into the postseason for the third time in his four-year
tenure but they were eliminated from the first round of the
playoffs for the third time. Utah beat them in seven games.

The 45-year-old Van Gundy posted a 182-and-146 record in four
seasons with the club. But Houston went 7-and-12 in three
postseason appearances. He had one nonguaranteed season left on his contract.

Rockets' brass talked earlier this week with former Kings,
Warriors and Trail Blazers coach Rick Adelman to judge his interest
in the position.
