The Detroit Pistons have dismissed assistant general manager Rob Murphy following an investigation on his alleged workplace misconduct with a former female team employee, per Tresa Baldas of The Detroit Free Press.

Murphy was placed on a leave of absence back in October when the accusations had floated from the side of the ex-female staffer. The Pistons went on to investigate the case.

Murphy, 50, joined Detroit’s G League affiliate Motor City Cruise as their president and general manager back in March 2021. After five months, he was named as the Pistons’ Senior Director of Player Personnel.

Last year in June, the Pistons announced the promotion of Murphy to become their newest assistant general manager.

Before his stop in Detroit, Murphy coached Eastern Michigan for 10 years, compiling a 166-155 coaching record. He also served as an assistant for Kent State (2002-2004) and Syracuse (2004-2011).
