PHOENIX, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- The Phoenix Suns announced Friday that Alvin Gentry is out as head coach after five seasons.

The team and Gentry "have mutually agreed to part ways," a Suns statement said.

The NBA team is 13-28 this season.

An interim coach was to be named soon, the team said.

The Suns don't play again until Wednesday.

The 58-year-old Gentry, who became interim and then head coach in 2009, has a 158-144 record with the Suns.

Gentry was in the final year of his contract with the Phoenix club.

He previously coached Detroit, Miami and the Los Angeles Clippers.
