You knew he wouldn’t be out of work for long.

Recently fired Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey has found a new home, signing a five-year deal to join the Detroit Pistons, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Casey was in an unusual situation, finding himself out of work after leading the Raptors to a franchise record 59-win season to lead the Eastern Conference. But the team crashed and burned against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, causing president Masai Ujiri to make a move.

The Raptors are still on the search to find a replacement for Casey, with San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Ettore Messina and Raptors assistant Nick Nurse emerging as the frontrunners.
