Former Toronto Raptors' head coach Dwane Casey takes home NBA Coach of the Year

After guiding the Toronto Raptors to their best ever regular season record former head coach Dwane Casey was honoured with the NBA's Coach of the Year awards on Monday night.

Casey led the Raptors to a 59-23 record in 2017-18 good enough for the number one seed in the Eastern Conference.

After defeating the Washington Wizards in the first-round, the Raptors fell to the eventual Eastern Conference Champions 4-0 in the second round.

Casey became the first coach in Raptors' history to coach at the NBA All-Star game - he also became the only coach in franchise history to record 300 wins.

Casey was relieved of his coaching duties on May 11 finishing with a 320-238 record over seven seasons.

Casey Joins Sam Mitchell as the only two head coaches in Toronto's franchise history to win the awards. Mitchell took home the honour in 2005-06 after leading the Raptors to their first division title.
