List of Detroit Pistons head coaches

The Detroit Pistons are a U. S. professional basketball team based in Detroit, Michigan. They play in the Central Division of the Eastern Conference in the National Basketball Association; the team, owned by Tom Gores, plays its home games at Little Caesars Arena. The franchise was founded in 1941 by Fred Zollner as the Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons, playing in the National Basketball League. In 1948, the team was renamed to the Fort Wayne Pistons and joined the Basketball Association of America, which merged with the NBL to become the NBA a year later. After spending nine seasons in Fort Wayne, Zollner moved the team to Detroit, Michigan in 1957 to be able to compete financially with other big city teams. In the 1980s, general manager Jack McCloskey was instrumental in the Pistons' future championship runs by drafting Isiah Thomas, acquiring key players like Joe Dumars and Dennis Rodman and hiring head coach Chuck Daly; the 1980s team, known today as "the Bad Boys" due to the physical playing style won two championships in the 1989 and 1990 NBA Finals under Daly.

The Pistons won their third and most recent title in the 2004 NBA Finals under the tenure of Larry Brown. There have been 36 head coaches for the Pistons franchise since joining the NBA; the franchise's first head coach while in the NBA was Carl Bennett, who coached the team for six games, all of which are losses. Chuck Daly is the franchise's all-time leader in regular-season games coached, regular-season games won, playoff games coached, playoff games won. Daly and Larry Brown are the only members of the franchise to have been inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame as coaches. Both Ray Scott and Rick Carlisle have won NBA Coach of the Year in the 1973–74 and 2001–02 season, with the Pistons respectively. Former coach Dick Vitale was named to the Basketball Hall of Fame in honor of the work he did as a basketball broadcaster after leaving the Pistons. Sixteen head coaches have spent their entire NBA head coaching careers with the Pistons. Curly Armstrong, Red Rocha, Dick McGuire, Dave DeBusschere, Donnie Butcher, Terry Dischinger, Earl Lloyd and Michael Curry played for the team.

The current head coach of the Pistons is Dwane Casey. Note: Statistics are correct through the end of the 2018–19 season; the list does not include NBL seasons.

Unity (cable system)

Unity is a Trans-Pacific submarine communications cable between Japan and the United States, completed in April 2010. Unity comprises a 10,000 km linear cable system with a "multi-terabit" capacity of up to 7.68 Tbit/s. Construction of the cable was funded by a consortium formed in February 2008 comprising Bharti Airtel, Global Transit, Google, KDDI Corporation and SingTel. Unity's installation cost around US$300 million, its completion increased Trans-Pacific cable capacity by around 20 per cent. In February 2008 a consortium comprising Bharti Airtel, Global Transit, Google, KDDI Corporation and SingTel announced that they had executed agreements to build a high-bandwidth subsea fiber optic cable linking the United States and Japan, with an estimated construction cost of US$300 million. A signing ceremony was held in Tokyo on February 23, 2008 at which the Unity consortium contracted NEC Corporation and Tyco Telecommunications to construct and install the system. NEC and Tyco began work on the project in June 2008.

The cable reached Japan in November 2009. Testing of the cable was completed, it became ready for service, in April 2010. Unity is a 10,000 kilometer Trans-Pacific cable between Chikura, located off the coast near Tokyo, Los Angeles and other network points of presence on the West Coast of the United States. At Chikura, Unity is connected to other cable systems; the new five fiber pair cable system has five fiber pairs, with each fiber pair capable of carrying up to 960 gigabits per second. By having a high fiber count, Unity is able to offer more capacity at lower unit costs. Unity is expected to increase Trans-Pacific lit cable capacity by about 20 percent, with the potential to add up to 7.68 terabits per second of bandwidth across the Pacific. Writing in The New York Times in September 2007, Saul Hansell said of Google's anticipated involvement in Unity that: "Google may be the ultimate do-it-yourself company. From the start, Google's sense of its own engineering superiority, combined with a tightwad sensibility, led it to build its own servers.

It writes its own operating systems. It is now threatening to buy wireless carrier spectrum and it is getting ready to hire ships that will lay a data communications cable across the Pacific..."
