Snyder was one of the finalist for the job last year and probably would have ended up getting it if not for the extra round of interviews that pushed Dunlap back into the mix.

 

It's probably end up being down to Shaw (if he want's it and MJ is still willing to offer him) and Snyder.  I hope I'm wrong on this, but I'm kinda expecting Snyder to get the job. 

 

I'm hoping the team hires Alvin Gentry.

They haven't even contacted Shaw, and don't plan to due to the way he trashed our organization last year.

  • Quinn Snyder played PG at Duke and was a asst. under Coach K.
  • Very smart guy, graduated w/ double major from duke, received JD from Duke law school, and a MBA from Duke business school. Considered a pick and roll guru and has published articles on the evolution of the pick and roll. Would be a offensive minded coach.
  • First head coaching job was with mizou. Did a very good job, but resigned because a handful of minor NCAA violations.
  • got back into coaching in the d-league w/ austin torros(2007-2010) Won championships with them.  
  • Develope coach with 76ers, Asst. coach under Lakers. Went to Moscow w/ other asst. coach that took head job.
  • Suns, 76ers, and Bobcats are giving him extensive looks

He would be a good hire. Was the frontrunner last year until Dunlap cockblocked him for the job.

I wouldn't be totally upset with Synder I suppose. I would definitely love a PnR offense with Kemba running the show. Only problem is that we don't have a great PnR big to pair with Kemba. I'd like to think that Biz can develop into that, and if not then hopefully Noel if we do draft him.

Snyder also had affairs and was rumored he liked to party(with coke). Which is one of the reasons he took a short break from coaching. If the guy held his poo togather he would have been a bigger name than he is now.

 

I would be happpy with him or gentry

Link above is Steve Nash defending Gentry for being fired. Nash and author make good points. New GM for Suns did a bad job bringing in talent. Also once the new regime came in there was no extension for his contract. Gentry was sort of in limbo. In fact its kinda similiar to what happened here to John Fox.

 

I think it would be real cool if Gentry ran a offense for Kemba like the Suns did for Nash. Im not a coach so I dont know if that would be easy to translate here or if he would have to tailer more to the guys here.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
