Grizzlies Fire Fratello as Coach 

Mired in a disappointing 6-24 season so far, Memphis Grizzlies' coach Mike Fratello has been fired, and team General Manager Jerry West plans a press conference on Friday to discuss the firing. ``We just felt it was time to make a change and move in a different direction based on our record and future goals,'' West said in a statement.

Fratello had compiled a 95-83 record since taking over for Hubie Brown on Dec. 2, 2004 and had led the Grizzlies to two postseason appearances; like his predecessor, however, he won no playoff games.
