Shock coach Laimbeer steps down

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) Bill Laimbeer resigned as coach of the WNBA champion Detroit Shock three games into the season Monday in hopes of landing an NBA job.

Assistant Rick Mahorn, a teammate of Laimbeer's from their Detroit Pistons days, was promoted to coach. Cheryl Reeve will remain an assistant and become the general manager.

Laimbeer was hired as coach of the Shock in 2002 and led them to three titles in six years.
