Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni has resigned after less than two seasons on the job.
The team confirmed D'Antoni's resignation Wednesday night.
D'Antoni went 67-87 after taking over the Lakers early in the 2012-13 season.
The injury-plagued Lakers were 27-55, their worst season in more than 50 years. Los Angeles missed the playoffs for only the third time in 38 years.
D'Antoni, 62, had one year left on his contract, but he wanted the Lakers to pick up his option year for 2015-16. The Lakers apparently refused, leading to D'Antoni's resignation.
He walked away from a $4 million payday for next season.
Lakers great Magic Johnson tweeted: "Happy days are here again!"
