The Grizzlies are the seventh team to fire a coach this season, following Washington, Toronto, Sacramento, Philadelphia, Oklahoma City and Minnesota.
O.J. Mayo, the No. 3 overall pick in last year's draft, and Rudy Gay both have been bright spots for Memphis, but the team was 29th in the league in scoring at 93 points per game.
The Grizzlies made the playoffs for three straight seasons from 2003-06, but were swept in the first round each time.
