Randy Wittman, 1999-2001: Wittman was 62-102 in his pair of seasons on the bench. The team finished 6th in the division both years. He didn't reach the playoffs with Cleveland.
In his other head coaching duties in the NBA with Minnesota and Washington he performed much worse than he did in Cleveland so his 32-50 season in 1999-2000 ended up being no doubt his best performance yet on an NBA bench.
In over two seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves he recorded a 38-105 record. As the current head coach of the Washington Wizards after taking over during last season he has a 18-31 record and actually lifted the team to a tiny bit of respectability towards the end of the season.
Overall in the league his record is 118-238 for a winning percentage of .331. Keep in mind that his percentages with the Cavs were .390 and .366.
Congratulations Coach Wittman!
