Doug Collins told ESPN.com late Wednesday night that he talked to Pistons president Joe Dumars and thanked him for the consideration, but would remain an analyst for TNT.
That leaves Avery Johnson as the front runner.
“I had a great talk with Joe (Dumars) and I appreciate being considered for the job, but I’ve decided to take my name out of the running,” said Collins late Wednesday night. “I am honored to have been given the opportunity. I have great affection for the Davidson family (owner Karen and late husband William), great affection for the whole organization and for the fans in Detroit.
“At this time, however, I feel it’s best that I not pursue the job.” Via The Detroit News

A little laugh goes a long way.
