CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins says the team will hire a new head coach within the next couple of weeks, but it won't be Patrick Ewing.

Higgins said that owner Michael Jordan informed Ewing that the team plans to hire someone other than him to replace Paul Silas.

Exactly who that is remains to be seen.

Higgins says "Patrick has a lot of great qualities as a coach and he will one day be a head coach."

The Bobcats have interviewed eight candidates for the job and plan to talk with more in the next week or so. Once they conclude that process, they'll narrow the list down to the final few candidates who will then meet with Jordan face-to-face before a final decision is made.
