There was a December game in Milwaukee when Haywood was pulled in the first half for missing a defensive assignment. Dunlap gave Haywood such a look of disgust along the sideline that night that a scout from another team sought out a Charlotte media member to ask what happened.
"Dunlap was a demanding guy who tended toward the negative. He was smart with Xs and Os and didn’t mind letting you know that, but he was also snappish and hard to relate to. He was, simply, a boss who many of the players didn't like."
"Sources said several of the players gave negative feedback on Dunlap’s prospects of succeeding long-term. The process was reminiscent of Sam Vincent’s firing following a single Bobcats season in 2007-08."
