Suns remove 'interim' tag, retain Earl Watson as coach

PHOENIX (AP) Without formally interviewing anyone else, the Phoenix Suns retained Earl Watson as their head coach for next season.

Watson was named interim coach after Jeff Hornacek was fired on Feb. 1.

The team went 9-24 under Watson, finishing the season with the second-worst record in franchise history (23-59). But general manager Ryan McDonough liked what he saw from the young coach.
