The 61-year-old finished his tenure as the team's winningest coach but could never get it over the hump in the playoffs.
Casey, 61, was voted "Coach of the Year" by his fellow National Basketball Association coaches after leading Toronto to an Eastern Conference-best 59-23 record, the best mark in franchise history, but he was relieved of his duties shortly after another embarrassing four-game sweep at the hands of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. And proving his best days are ahead of him.
Detroit is rebuilding its franchise, hiring both Stefanski and now Casey to replace former team president and coach Stan Van Gundy. He was named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month five times, and last February, became the first coach in Raptors history to be selected to coach in the NBA All-Star game.

This led to Casey getting fired, even after being awarded Coach of the Year by his peers.
Prior to his appointment with Toronto, he served as head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves from 2005-07.
