The Cleveland Cavaliers have named seven-year NBA veteran head coach and Cavaliers all-time winningest head coach Mike Brown as the team's new head coach, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant and majority owner Dan Gilbert announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. Brown, 43, most recently coached the Los Angeles Lakers and was the head coach of the Cavaliers from 2005-10. He has a career head coaching record of 314-167 (.652) which is the 6th highest winning percentage in NBA history among coaches with at least 400 games coached. The Cavs are holding a news conference at 2:30pm today.

A big announcement is expected from Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald.

He is expected to formally announce plans to run for Governor against Republican Governor John Kasich. "We need a governor who will stand up for middle class families, for women's rights, and for good paying jobs," FitzGerald said. "Ohioans want an end to pay to play politics, rampant cronyism and wasteful spending of our tax dollars on corporate donors and political perks. As a former FBI agent I've seen first-hand how, with the right leadership, we can turn our communities around and reclaim our state." FitzGerald will speak to the media at 12:30pm today.
