    To replace Slocum 

    That’s what I think!

    What is the fascination some fans have with wanting former players to come back to coach? Particularly players who aren’t in coaching already?

      Same fascination that makes other fans cheer for James Fredette over their own NBA team.

        Obviously, sometimes it works. But a lot of times it doesn’t. 

        It’s just weird to me that every time there is a coaching vacancy, the list of names some people throw out to fill it is filled with former players. And many times it is guys with little to no coaching experience.

      Andre’ Miller… Yeah he is just some former player.  only the best point guard that Utah has ever had.  Played 4 years under the Master Rick Majerus.  plus401 years in the NBA, played under a number of diffferent coaches, from LA, a gym rat. 

      You are correct – he can’t coach a point guard (something Utah has lacked for a number of years).  he didn’t learn anything since he left the UTES. 

      That’s the fascination.

        Great player does not automatically equal great coach.

        Take Isiah Thomas for example. Hall of famer, top 50 player, NCAA & NBA champion, played for Bobby Knight and yet he was awful as a coach and GM.

        I would imagine that when it comes to star athletes getting into coaching, there are significantly more who turn out to be busts as coaches than turn out to be great, or even good, coaches.

        Cool.  Get him involved in fundraising and maybe take him on a few recruiting trips.  Bring him in to give a speech or two. 

        But unless he really wants to coach and shows an aptitude for it, it is not a good idea to hire him as a coach.
