In a development slightly less predictable than Will Leitch’s Peyton Manning/Kenny Chesney hangup (though considerably more predictable than my choice of the above photograph), Stan Van Gundy (above) has resigned as head coach of the Miami Heat.

Team president Pat Riley, after conducting a extensive search, has determined the best man for the job is Pat Riley.

Following last night’s OT win over Washington, the Heat are 11-10, a mildly disappointing mark even taking Shaquille O’Neal missing 18 games into account.

Van Gundy has cited family considerations as his reason for quitting. While there might be some truth to that, there’s also something to be said for not having to spend a few hours a day with J-Will or Antoine Walker.
