09:56 AM ET 03.24 | With the Clippers coming off an 0-3 trip, Coach Vinny Del Negro's job status has been scrutinized during these turbulent times. Even though his players said they supported Del Negro, the decision to keep him as coach for the rest of the season and beyond ultimately rests with owner Donald Sterling. Neil Olshey, the Clippers' vice president of basketball operations, declined to comment Friday about Del Negro. There have been no discussions about letting Del Negro go before the end of this season and he is expected to be on the sidelines when the Clippers play the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday afternoon at Staples Center, according to two people familiar with the situation who were not authorized to comment publicly. Del Negro's contract is guaranteed for the rest of this season, and the Clippers have the option to renew his contract for next season.

Stirling won't fire a coach under contract. It means you would have to spend more money.
