Mike Dunleavy Sr. was born March 21, 1954 and is a retired American professional basketball player, former head coach, and former general manager of the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers. He is the father of Milwaukee Bucks player Mike Dunleavy, Jr.
Dunleavy was named NBA Coach of the Year in 1999 while with the Blazers. He remained in Portland until the end of the 2000-2001 season, when he was fired. He made the playoffs four times with team, but lack of playoff success and frequent off-court incidents by players caused his dismissal. He joined the Clippers in 2003. Dunleavy was a candidate[clarification needed] for the 2006 Coach of the Year (did not win, the award went to Avery Johnson) and led the Clippers to the second round of the playoffs. It was their first playoff berth since 1997, and the franchise's first series win since a 1977 first-round victory while the team was still playing in Buffalo. The Clippers finished 40-42 in 2006-07, out of the playoffs after a season-ending slump brought on by injury.
He has done work for TNT in 2008, calling NBA playoff games.
On February 4, 2010, Dunleavy stepped down from his duties as the Clippers' coach.
