Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly fired head coach Mike Brown in the wake of a 1-4 start.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Brown was informed of the decision on Friday morning before the team was set to take on Golden State to start a six- game homestand.

The Lakers lost their first three games before their lone victory -- a 108-79 triumph over winless Detroit on Sunday. After a 95-86 setback at Utah on Wednesday, speculation surrounding Brown's job status was rampant.

Brown was just beginning his second year as Lakers coach. The team was 41-25 during the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season and lost to Oklahoma City in the second round of the Western Conference playoffs.
