Reports: Nuggets part ways with Karl

The Denver Nuggets and head coach George Karl have reportedly parted ways.

The Nuggets have yet to make it official, but Yahoo! Sports first reported the news and 9News in Denver also said it received confirmation from Karl.

Karl was the NBA' top coach in 2012-13 after leading the Nuggets to a team- record 57 wins, a league-best 38-3 mark at home and the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference. However, Denver was ousted in the first round of the playoffs by Golden State in six games.

Karl joined Denver in January 2005 and guided the Nuggets to a record of 423-257 with playoff appearances in each of his nine seasons. However, the team was eliminated in the first round eight times and had its greatest success in the spring of 2009 with a trip to the Western Conference finals.
