It’s official: Michael Curry is the new coach

Here's the AP's entire 12-word announcement:

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Michael Curry will coach the Detroit Pistons says team exec Joe Dumars.

WDFN confirms it (via TZ and Ballhype):

WDFN broke the story that Joe Dumars has indeed hired Michael Curry as the next head coach of the Pistons. The press conference will be Tuesday at Noon and you'll hear it live on Sportsradio 1130 - WDFN.

Updates will follow, I'm sure.

Update: More details from the AP:

Dumars tells the AP Curry will be introduced at a news conference on Tuesday. The team sent out a release Monday afternoon saying the new coach would be announced at that news event, but did not reveal his identity.

Curry agreed to a three-year deal worth $2.5 million a year guaranteed with the team holding the option for a fourth season.

Curry lacks any head coaching experience, and he's being paid accordingly: his annual salary will be less than half of the $5.4 million Saunders is collecting this year.
