Endangering definitely would allow lots how many times I have to say yes 60% off everything in this ethics exactly but he got to be a line between 11 AM and noon this Saturday at the time it sure mom Perkins extended details online at all right you're stuck on. I'm Nicole. Dropped the ball when it comes to your insurance let's take farm agency moment you can point your keywords are two things like your house.

Perspective to Memphis radio he'll make you think it makes you laugh and sometimes. This station children. Jesse's defense for. Give me better ratio. Very very Brad Carson. Studio produced the program flag when they graduate they hope here. Larry Brown had offered a consulting job of Memphis who think Larry Brown would make an excellent result and for Matt. I'm just glad Brownback getting that bad job more than anything. We probably insulted by the awful way to get into the latest development for the member of basketball program but just the moment. Felt very quickly added that the veterans category 41 John Mark my lower body hello Jay judge show you today cookie yeah. Now and very. The man though we're gonna get there until after the basketball top of the job market going to be here. About twenty minutes from now when I finish at that we'll do more noble stores pulled 44 wood Ford. Gonna discuss fourth previously discussed north among them the grip these exit meetings court today and I went about getting ready to step of the way that makes me think Britney knows the next coach is going to be you get into that a full 44. The New York Knicks to reportedly injured have been talking Villanova Jay Wright about their coaching vacancy otherwise likely be a short conversation a little later on this hour. Seattle Seahawks. Reportedly postponed a meeting in workout for college happening. Because he wouldn't promise that he is free game protests were over the next insisting on a couple different level we'll get into that. Just before 5 o'clock in the PGA. Tour now starting today. That met the girls the World Golf Championship live in August 2. Now the nineteenth huge delta it wider for notable story the full 445 o'clock job Crockett he'll be here just like always Blagojevich would do dinner to go get out of here is that the rundown. Got a lot to get to but I want to start with latest developments with the University of Memphis men's basketball program really three developments. Of note since we last spoke yesterday. One coach Lomax east high point guard. Officially signed with the University of Memphis at a ceremony last night to Mike Miller is now officially on staff. At the University of Memphis so he works underpinning Hardaway side by side with Tony Matlock in the third development. Is that that the commercial pill is reporting that Larry Brown has officially been offered. A consulting. Job at the University of Memphis and that the University of Memphis. Is a waiting on his response I'll tell you what his responses in just a second let's take these stories yeah in order. I want doubtful Max on the embers to Memphis last night and how what an impressive yeah young man. How impressively he came across last night. I'm it's not easy to be a young and to speak publicly the way he did it yet I thought he handled it a brilliantly just. A tremendous message and it was a tremendous scene in just touched on this a little bit this morning but I think it's worth repeating. The idea that Memphis kids still don't. Hold Memphis and a special place. Which is what the previous staff tried to trot out there nowadays edit is just clearly untrue if you saw that last night. Whether it was but doubtful max's mother and her reaction. Or just the whole scene in general is very clear that that Memphis kids still hold Memphis. In an incredible place down. You've just got it. Not be sold added more jobs bracket that you make them want to go other places like Wichita. Or wherever I'd. And I think that Lou would that same last night. We're real tears and real excitement. About a young man who's raised in this community. And as Alex put it raised by this community. Choosing to it to now be in the point guard for. Him. Basketball program in this city that has mattered. In in a very real way for a long long time well before I was even born. He noted the idea that that that does still mean something. Or or mean what it once meant. Which again is what Tubby Smith suggested publicly I'm just not true if you saw any of that last night read any of the comments last night. I you know that Memphis still matters to Memphis kid you just gotta. Not give a reason to leak out just make them want to stay in the previous staff for whatever reason could not do that. A distaff I imagine it's going to be I'm quite different. The second story like I said Mike Miller officially on staff I am not surprised but I do know that some people were like what's going on ahead and announced yet. I'm as we talked about before. I'm there was a lot of you know it's funny to of the hires at the University of Memphis. Penny Hardaway a Mike Miller. Are not your normal coaching hires at at the high major level. I am they're former players. Slash multi billionaires. Slash people who had real and documented connections to grassroots basketball programs. That are no longer going to be allowed if they are employee. By the University of Memphis and suddenly operating. Under an NCAA. Our umbrella and so it was not impossible or even complicated to get all this stuff cleaned up. But it is a process to get this stuff cleaned up too detached right in a formal waved from a business work from what you have to detach from for Kenny it was team penny. For Mike it was in 33 AM. And so apparently they've got. Most of that if not all of that now in order. And and Anne and Mike Miller has a announced publicly for the first time earlier today. That yes he's got to be a Penny Hardaway staff at the University of Memphis and that he's excited. To be armed Penny Hardaway staff at the University of Memphis and like I said before I think my checks are a whole bunch of boxes. For what makes. A quality. Assisted. I mean he's he fits that he AE is is recognizable. Both in face and name. That the kids that he is going to be recruiting. Are probably aware. Of his existence. In a way that. Just will not be the case with any other first year. Cost assistant coach in America and it and it probably also have grown up watching him play and there was a two time world champion. The former rookie of the year a little bronze he has the credentials that that resonate with young people has been and where they wanna go he has done what they wanted to do. He's also clearly got a passion for. And you know he doesn't have to do this he doesn't need a job. And go look it is. Contractual terms over the years he's made a lot of money we spent I think seventeen years in the NBA. If that's a lot of money. And so. He could have spent. The past year of retirement. Simply playing golf. Or relaxing on a beach. Or living anywhere in this country or anywhere in this world. He could create whatever life he wants to create for himself. And yet he's been part of this past year. Still making home in Memphis. And working with you basketball players. Working out prospects again people who wanna be where he's already been. Who wanna do what he's already done. I think that's an impressive quality. It suggests that he's not just doing this out of boredom. On that this is what he wants to do. If I had a hundred million dollars. And suddenly retired I don't know that I would spend my time working out sixteen year old and seventeen Euro and a but the fact that might did over the past year suggest that he likes being on that court. He likes working with young people. He likes developing basketball players and that's an an awesome quality. To have as an assistant coach or any coach. And then thirdly. He's cool people. Ultimately. You hear coaches say it all the time it's a bit of a cliche but it doesn't make it untrue. Recruiting is a relationship business. You have to convince. Ultimately convinced either young people or people connected to young people. Why what you're offering is is better than what somebody else is is offering you got to make them feel like they wanna be with you that's the key. I would be would that guy. You know if you are strictly going to try to sell kids on Memphis as opposed to duke or Kentucky. Or North Carolina or Kansas. You can do that would Memphis kids but outside this market that's gonna be tough. Because Memphis isn't. Those places. That this is an in those leaks. So you gotta have something else. You can go to duke and be with them or you can come here and be with me you can go to Carolina and be with them or you can come here and be with me. You simply your president's. Past the matter. With people and Mike has the people skills to I think create some relationships like that. I'm bottom line easy it's been. Long documented. That he has a unique basketball mind it's why even when he wasn't playing much late in his career. I am basically everything I was told by every front office official or or coach in that league. Was that he brought value just a locker room. He had value just on that bench he had value just being around young people talk NBA people have recognized that about Mike. For years now. I am that it suggests that he's got value on a college staff as well. Am. Again he had his option on jobs ice genuinely believe he wanted to be an NBA staff he could if you wanna be an NBA front office he code. I'm he wanted to be on a college staff you wanna be a college coach in. Com. For all of the reasons I've just stated and others I'm I think there's a good hire. By pinning. You again now joins Tony Matlock on staff and there's still one opening. And though. It has been reported for more than a month that Larry Brown would be a candidate for that job and the Penny Hardaway has publicly stated. That he wanted Larry Brown. To be on his staff and one of those rolls it now appears. More so. Than ever before the that is not going to happen. Because earlier today. Margin out of Geoff Calkins and a double bottom line story commercial to a dot com reported that. Memphis has offered a job to Larry Brown like formally offered a job and their brand but it is not as an assistant coach is not as an associate head coach. It is as they quote. Consult. And I can just tell you that. Unless Larry Brown had a complete and eighty. On his thought process and he has absolutely no interest alone in being a consultant. For the University. Of Memphis like I've told you for about a month now and even longer. Larry wants to be on a court. Working with young people. Working with pity. He wants to be on the road recruiting was to be an actual assistant coach. And yet on it does not appear that Memphis is willing to give him. That opportunity. In. By bio allowing him to accept a position that would allow him under incidentally rules to do those days. He wants to instruct young people in mid two more young coaches. He wants to be on a court with Alex Lomax in German Marten. In side by side with Penny Hardaway. Tony Matlock. And Mike Miller. And yet that's not the job that that Kenny has has been allowed to. To offer him. And I think more than anything. At this point. I am. We'll be back up a little bit. He he was always gonna reject this type of offer shore in 77 years old he's a multimillionaire he doesn't need to be equal pay consultant that doesn't fulfill any of the passion that he had. And it doesn't mean that penny can't still applicable. Like yeah pick up the phone and call him like it if he wants to actually use Larry Brown as a consultant and get that done. Shore outlive every little tick is called war. Even going forward there will take this call ever relationship here I think there's one is like I don't need to be on staff for that now. And I moved to Memphis to Colby a consultant right like if you need something for me and wants to call me yeah I'm here for him shore same way out here for everybody okay I'm here for Bill Self. I'm here for everybody and I am a consultant to all college basketball coaches all basketball coaches at any level bank if they have a way to get in touch with me. And in and I can help them and someone. I'm happy to take their call and talk them through anything. He does have a real passion for for for helping coaches just talking to coaches just chopping it up with coaches. Like I said before. Larry Brown is is not your typical retired basketball coach like that motto is a retired basketball coach. That has a lot of interest outside of basketball. I think most coaches have a lot of interest outside of basketball Larry doesn't. Larry doesn't have any interest in sitting on a beach and watching the waves crashing and he didn't have any interest in sitting on the back porch and drink a beer and watching the sunset. It was to bench him he was the coach he wants to instruct he wants to develop he wants to beat around. College coaches now or any kind of coach just wants to be around basketball. I can remember when he was out of the NBA briefly. John cal Perry would they go to Memphis and I was the beat writer Larry with their all the time just sitting there he might not say anything for and how war. But he just like love being in that Jim just wants to be there now and so Memphis hasn't. Given him that opportunity. In which is why nobody frustrating thing I think it's frustrating. Also a little embarrassing yet because. You can still however you wanna feel about. Larry Brown Tom ball below for how this thing has played out but. I don't think it's important understand from Larry's perspective. I put his name out there on March sic yeah the first story it's April 12 so it's been more than a mark. They had a week before Tubby Smith was even fired. If they knew penny with interest that in this. And only had to do was read my story. And or talk to pity about a decade taught him a ride but this isn't like something that came out of nowhere patent popping the combo of office last week. And say hey arm just one run something by yeah I'm interested in Larry Brown. I reported on March 6. Any knowledge to it the Davis hire. At the press yet to my knowledge did again on just show the next morning. So. This has been something. That. They could have. Killed a long time ago in an official capacity if they wanted to there's a million different ways to do. I'm you can leak it to somebody and just say hey listen Larry Brown is now getting hired in Memphis periods or be done with. But it is linger and linger and linger. And Larry never killed it. Because he didn't want to kill it because he wanted the job he wanted to move to Memphis and work with pity. And from his perspective. I was beat from Larry for Larry bud from his perspective. I'm a hall of fame coach. Who has won a national championship college. One world championship at the NBA level. And is widely regarded as one of the best basketball minds to ever live. I'm willing to move to Memphis Tennessee. To be assistant coach. And work with your first year head coach. Who says he wants me on staff. And you won't let me. Like I like white. Could win the story initially published march 6. Go back and look at the initial reaction. It was that people saying it meant they should not do this or Memphis won't do this. There was some of that enough march. Most of it was like get out your Laird Browning can be abused because it can't happen people tried to be dismissive of my report data that was what they said. It wasn't rooted and Memphis will do this right or shouldn't do this can't have for the most part it was mostly rooted in brown wouldn't do this I wouldn't take it. What we found out is that. What I told you back there and yes I would yes he would yes friends in this market he's familiar with this market. He's. Is a high opinion of penny yes he blew it so from Larry's perspective. Are you one of the greats the ballpark. He would I don't think describe himself this way but a but that's widely understood in a basketball that's who he has yes. And only man to ever win at NCAA title and an NBA title. And in the hall of fame. I am a respected basketball mind. And I'm willing to do it you won't let me what's and you let it play out so publicly for a month now I'm willing to come there. Only the money I don't need the job I'm just I'm just you know still I'm just interested in helping out and Memphis doesn't want me at Memphis that is vacated two final forced thinks it's too good for me. I think he's frustrated by just like your coach go and your you know ha I I think he's frustrated by that and wishes that yeah it. Memphis genuinely wasn't going to go. In this direction right then that could have been handled a long time ago or if they were actually going to consider it. Then. Talk to me right. If you're really athletic director and you are reluctant to hire me talk to me. And then maybe you say all right we're not gonna do it but. Talk to me talk to people who know me talk to people who've worked with me and then make a decision on. But don't let it play out for a marked and then offered me a job you know why won't accept. I think he's frustrated by that cure a little embarrassed by the way it played out but as they say it is what idiots John mourns on next.

I think like you broke down on the side of the road they come and save your day. Like my cards literally in my driveway and I look I'm a grown man like Shirley I could change if and I I'm like now AAA got the coming handled it felt like there legible I got I got actually comes to my house I imagine most their calls there. Gathered on the side of the interstate was somebody up. In a row automatic. I don't right now I'm invited I'm in my shorts and T shirt I'm just like hold Louis M do you know we come to the door and I'm like hey appreciated if that tire right there. Yeah I got a guy I gather. I guess so we just look at every like. How worthless argue that you meet meet under two minutes went really wide key problem doing that now. It it's like I did so yesterday when I get when I notice the flat tire. I guess theoretically sound like an actual man type man. Could have just changed the tire and then like we don't in the got straight to studio never even crossed my mind that that was an actual option that I could change my own tire and still get to studio on time so they got her xxx I think that's the one run and I. Yeah I ain't exactly that you lose your job looks great on your show out all the stigma of the evacuated Gary every day and I appreciate the last. No it's like I really work let's right. We had to go to new baby G but given Oliver like failed downforce stare. Like crashed right into it and like completely broken now so we had to get a new baby gate had to get one of my body to come over yesterday and install that now it is made it to him and I think install it is literally just. To really something into the wall that's it that's all it takes. And yet it that that's impossible for me I dad in the same dad and I had called another man to install my baby gate. And then I had to call another man to change to just based just change a tire the most basic way. No I I'd I'd really can't do anything what care what it what good reminding anybody. And here in eight triggered it you got it doesn't I'll add. But what I'll let the motto I live by that keeps you could change if your car had a flat tire in your driveway right now could you John Mark go outside and change. Yeah of course. Bracket youth counselor Don a I've done in the last too much I learned right now are you get the jacket on the left it up and then you you know yeah it gave. Get the reds yeah under recruited guys like those clues Gary. Yeah it's pretty simple they're proud if I get I get at buried I get it seems confident do you remember the glory save you about bush Cheney Greg yeah I love you. Do you have a story out attendance at Mississippi State I don't remember us yapping with Kentucky Mississippi State game get a college student there and help you out and I visits a so I had a flat tire. I know what happened I just came out and it was like flat I. And like a UConn or summer time home it was eight it was have top hole yet Tahoe I had just gotten from Jim Carey Chevrolet remember that so it's not even my car I I don't even aware that. Tire it's. And I'm sitting there looking everywhere for the tire kingdom find I'm legit it's 2 in the morning I just got out of the arena. After writing a column I have no idea where the pirate I've got a book out I can't figure out where the tire is there. This guy walks up to me he's like hey what's up man. And I say what's up because you need some help. He's he could be is. S face strong ya are right drugs student he's like he's like hey you think they need some help I'm like I do need some help if you like if you've actually got a minute like that. I think first off can you find the tire. Is that old tired right underneath but he doesn't new chore I had the ball like reading every paycheck could figure it out he is moot just because that's something he knows like where the tire that. So he'd like bull gets the tire jacks adopted by gifted puts it all book it took in ten minutes I could sit there and how war. Could even find the time it took just got like ten mystical thing died and then act where he does hey you coming over Joey tell. You've got to hurt somebody else and I'm like I'm Michael governor George always house what do you what do you mean and he was like. Is that what's your name of the Medicare he's like I'll do that to argue with somebody else in the automotive body. Yeah if I hit a five million I would have been stuck in start goal light all night long just we'll just leave it in the hall parking lot of sleep in and you can you can't hurt tunnel whatever went on I'm just incapable of doing anything that people are supposed to be able to do anyway how are you today John Martin. Right but under a great life great so mom. The commercial appeal reported today. What you're kind Jason talked about yesterday just that the reporter and a more official weigh that. The universe to Memphis has extended an offer actually put an offer. To Larry Brown to be a quote consultant. For the men's basketball program run by Penny Hardaway. I think you and I on the same page here there's just no scenario under which Larry Brown is going to accept that in fact I think he's a little frustrated by the whole thing and and maybe even embarrassed by the offer because. From his perspective I'm confident he goes. You gonna drag this out for remarked that often be a job you know why won't take is that what they just did here offered the job they know he won't take and then move on. Have a group that flight you know back. Even though it's it's it's it's not if it's I be able to say well you got it we operative McDonald about it Robert McDonnell. And they they they government job they got the job that you guys laid out like they did not gonna take it you're not every exit yep. Larry Brown as a consultant already like Larry Brown is pretty much on retainer for every college basketball program in the country. Actually you know he didn't need a consultant job he was which came in the wild or you know you it would have been Antonio spurs and try to can't let Paul speeded. It would be bigoted you've got to Kevin Ollie. In February like that's what he does he pretty much has free reign to do whatever you want that either. Sort of freelance consultant then help coaches that DC expect you know that the Republican debate for him. You know he won't call when you're consulted as you know Gary can't work with the kid can't. Work with the players are bigoted main bank but he wants to do what you really want to keep the game and when you're a consultant role you can't do that so. Now why I would and I'd be open body out there on out the hall of Famer. You yeah you should obviously field. Privilege that I haven't been able to do this I mean I loved one on the only met ever want to. You know NBA title in a national championship Macau a double to come work for you read that that they go to help you're. First time they've coached you know get along and and so yet now he's got taken that job and it idea unfortunate I think it's unfortunate we can come to a resolution where labor album that that could I think it's gonna I think it's going to be a bit opportunity I really did. That's from this perspective and out of that he would ever say this but I can imagine he would not think it. A holdup. Let Memphis thinks it's too good to have meat on staff like I I will I don't need the money I don't need the job I don't need Memphis. Does help. A penny thinks he needs me and I'm willing to do it because hey I have an incredible amount of respect for pity Embree. I just wanna be in the jam I have all the this knowledge to develop players and mentor coaches and unwilling and actually develop. Think it crazy to want to do it typical why you're so seven years old you could live anywhere in the world you lol yeah you do it while I'm often. Memphis Indian assistant basketball coach. You'll hear all of Famer Larry Brown a hall of Famer would be willing to go be an assistant basketball coach in America athletic conference school. And many men think it's too good for me. And methods we have vacated to follow all think it's too clean for me. Well that's right yeah that's what that I imagine that he's incredibly frustrated by the whole thing hey because the played up way plan now. B because it played out the way it played out so publicly. Each every lip and that's that's what's gonna happen. Wouldn't you don't have a clear understanding you know like it did you know you take. How long has it been pretty much know that Larry Brown was going to be involved in this in this job what month are gone amuck now been reported that initial reports a Marxist. Groups will be a bit behemoth would get a lot of mud Edwards just now getting to a point where they're seeing there have been some got a job offer me. There was a clear understanding there wasn't a clear direction somebody didn't make it clear along the way. All and editing it every frustrating frustrating it can be frustrating ironically. That the petty. Obviously be frustrating to Larry Brown actually pressuring commit this band that. You know the athletic director here seems to not. You know to not allow Citi to hire we want to hire you know I think that's you know that's that's that's frustrating and of itself and if I'm sure whoever I. You know I've I've heard a few games. That I'm sure whoever it is will be I'll fly coach but. I'll talk about competent tea that you know whoever it happens to be. Would no big be nowhere near as good did it more about wearing what Larry Brown can bring only because we're the only veteran Dudley embodied that all favor. You know that's a knock out whoever gonna end up being that says. They don't bring it to pay any. Somebody gonna teach him how to be a college coach somebody got to you know with all due respect according -- like he's never been a head coach. All due respect to Mike Miller he's never been in college ever. Somebody's got to teach him how to do the job. Dated date and I hope that whoever it is can do that. Do you have thoughts on who that guy should be like that ever forget who is higher herbal and and like. They do you have I'd like hey if you're getting are we called you and said hey give me three people need to talk to do you have three names in mind. I don't I wouldn't I have three names in mind specifically but I I mean I would say I can give you sort of a bold in the mold would be. You know dull if it doesn't need to be an NBA got like I would say that Leggett doesn't it you've got an NBA guy Mike Miller doesn't it he could be somebody. That's probably been a head coach I'm not I'm not I mean let them work. Gary you know how these things go we're getting into that that that's levity are going to be it's going to be hard higher up. You know former college head coach you know whose whose big demand at this point it out who'd been pretty laid the process but. I would say you know if it does that really need to be it NBA got it needed to be somebody. That done it at a high level either assisted or the head coach probably that none at all that you recruited that's scheduled beds. You know that pretty much run the data de able god about what Kroger in some capacity. Good to me that so important what you can't do that you can't Arab. You know of former NBA coach true. You know who maybe has been echoes of that level but has never got an account that you just cannot do that you have to have somebody. That can really show pretty the way you know for the future that would just next year ever for the next ten years. To really ensure that you successful. At the job so to me it took it needs to be somebody that grind did that that's done it at the college level who can really show them how to do that. Yeah I would prefer it not be somebody with a name BA background as opposed to. Tom I think it's preferable to have some admit it college basketball. A background. And I think it's probable that that they're not quote amend the sky. I got out I would I would rather. Have somebody that's not tied to Memphis and somebody who has done it. At the collegiate level for a long time and and head pockets of success. And one name that falls under that umbrella who I think is higher level. Trent Johnson. Former Stanford coach former now or are you pull out former LSU coach. Former TCU coach. I am not incredibly respected within the sport he has achieved the pockets of success. And he was just on David package its interim staff. At at mobile. They called him there of for the same reasons that he would theoretically call him here. Which is that they've just given David Padgett that program. Only on an interim basis but for a year. You know he'd never been a head coach at any level. And so they wanted a veteran on the staff to just sort of help them with the data day down and entering Johnson was that guy for him but again that was an interim step so I believe trade is available right now. I would I would go that direction of our pity right now I would I would at least sit down and have a conversation now with Trent Johnson ultimately. You've got to hire somebody you're comparable with this what you believe in what does it matter if I would become what Trent. And I believe in trip like I'm not a one hello I work would trick or anybody else every day. You'll get eighty dollars and he's comfortable with the need to believe. That is somebody I would sit down with that he had that already might have already that step please somebody I would sit down way. I loved I loved that idea I really do I love that idea I don't argue target. On your show yesterday via followed about JT bury loved JP three I don't know PB is. It out where where I don't know PB two column for the long term so I'm sure he gonna wanna get back in the coach I think that would be great you know anybody again. Who who can speak a doer get on a high level where there is a little bit of pressure in the job and can really again dish sort of guide any. Throughout these first formative years to go back that Josh passers tenure. I'll get well wolf guys that that first that happened and he had better that rice for a long time and you know he would he was really instrumental I believe them and help and died on. Business that this scheduling their recruiting to get guys the clad who'd like. He could show Josh all that you know he had yet been jaguar B but you know he needed. Bad guys. Who are the dogs are no. But yet he really he really needed that guy. Who can show on the weight and and it is paid. OK got to have that length is critical and NBA guys accomplished. I just don't know what I've done about it a long term health of this program underpaid Hardaway need to be somebody that that a report. That is John Martin here a nanny to none of them ESPN he will be back in studio tomorrow. At 11 AM tell you dog so what's up. Our most powerful I applaud that let. Well if you sit and Doug what are you gonna do. It do dot have to plug it took a look at what's up. Tells them that Ella. What are about listener just floated out what about AK what's he done what he does peace of any interest I think AK is bad to make more money ODD. Than Memphis could pay him to be an assist us at the NCAA interest in this must get in makes no TV that I think Andy is going to. Could take the time I'm bringing up yeah. That Tom Green rehab to works and it you make money and it works yeah yeah he'll be obese spectacular guy well on television so no I don't think that's possible I've seen him on TV to be SEC term and I watched him -- good boy he's just he he is what you want on TV yeah he's he's Smart kind of a good old boy IAEA he can talk to coach is yet he's good Smart good looking yeah but he did I think a good looking man yes he has any Smart and that's a great combination. If you got either one of those qualities you can you can make it on TV but you down but when you have both quality that is what you I'm looking for. I think he'll be the most pursued. Unemployed. College basketball coach for television purposes yeah and he'll be great edit for a year or two and bounce and then he'll be back in college coaching. At some level we will cease I don't think AK is an option but Trent Johnson makes men like him makes sense to me I would pick up the phone and talk to him and and see if that felt like a good fit we come back she's.

Or stories presented by the bluff restaurant and bar. We'll just start telling stories and forget. Owens every afternoon. So we've developed. I'm sitting viewers who are such an important things you need to know each day this time. This yeah he tees forward notable stories at 444. It's number one. It's so mean grizzlies had their exit interviews over at FedEx form earlier today and eating. Just to hear what Chris Wallace had to say just to hear wide. Marc Gasol had to say. And is a lot of the stuff about hey who will we think next series is is going to be a bounce back here down you know we were injured this year. Then we decided to take it in and neither direction to try to maximize our lottery odds and say this but this is pride as a read through the line this is sort of the and now we're gonna get a top five pick and we're gonna had an impact when young talent. And Mike will be help remarkably healthy general be healthy we'll come back and be ready to rock and roll. Next season whether that's true or not we will see but that was the message coming out of of of those interviews what I found especially interesting was the way the players. Spoke about JB Becker staff who've casa was the interim coach. I'm because. You know you're gonna be asked about him. And there's a bunch of different ways to answer that question. One way is just to say listen JB's great. And you know man we really enjoyed playing with them but ultimately that's the front office's job to figure out what the next who the next coaches and and will you know we'll let them do their jobs and we're just looking forward to play at the JB if his JB we're gonna be excited that somebody else will figured out. You can talk around right and yet he got full endorsement from multiple players. Mike Conley said JB Pakistan should definitely be our coach Al Chandler Parsons said everybody respects him and loves him wants him aback can so I know that. JD representational was trying to get a deal done. Back during the season and clearly they never got that done and blight. When multiple players and not just. You know any players but you know two of the biggest contracts on the team. To the most visible most important players on that roster. Go full endorsement for JB Vickers staff that suggests to me that's. I had in that direction that it was heading in that direction and for a couple different reasons fate. Because I do think that what they're saying it's true that people do respect him and love them and want him back that is my understanding. But also who else you hire right when you don't have a great situation to offer. A head coach right now. Anybody with other options is probably accepting the other option that you're gonna damaged hood well I mean you know you got it from coaches got an old roster and that. Has also has as a history of injuries. And very little. Very little. Promising young talent right on the roster. You know the idea that we get excited about. It was second round pick Dylan broke sort of says how little trash young talent there is on that on that roster. And so. You know Marcus also walked here. You know this could get really really really bad for a wide. Regardless of what next season looks like. Nobody get younger rob there so who are you hire you know we I reckon there's only thirty of these jobs in the worlds are like you know. You can you can yeah you get I don't know that if somebody ally we have hiring that's obviously better than JB Vickers I and so if there's not a good answer to that question. And the players seem completely onboard would javy then why not just way to make JBD. The permanent coach because he did. I can be a good soldier the sea or shore you know he took a lot of ills. In the spirit of doing what is best for the long term future of the franchise that is probably to be appreciated as well. I guess I would say this. I would think it's more than likely. Com a reality that at some point JB different staff will be. I introduced as the full time head coach of the Memphis Christmas story number two New York Knicks are reportedly interested in sitting down what Jay Wright Villanova coach and let's talk to him about their head coaching vacancy because in the middle of night last night they fired. Jeff won a sack after just two seasons I think he had on that job and soul. I guess I wrote this over CBS forced to account I guess that the conversation worth having. IE. Don't know. I don't imagine it can hurt them but it probably goes nowhere. Because G. You could argue is a better spot right now than literally any other college basketball coach America. Coaching. At home. In a Philly guy coaching at home. He. Is coaching. And his wife alma mater. He has reached icon status on that campus by winning two of the past three. National championships. And he's got a pre season top three team coming back. Why would you walk away from that. To go join. A notoriously. Dysfunctional franchise. With a goofy owner. In the middle of a rebuild. That seems to be going nowhere Juan. You know at some point it does become quality of life. Churn and Jay at this point. Has plenty of money. And whatever money additional money you can get from the knicks and it could be substantial for like it really doesn't change a day to day life. But you know what does change your day to day life the way you feel. Going from winning almost all of your games to losing almost all of your guess. Because it's pinch proven over and over again it does not matter how good the coach is at the NBA level. If you don't have a front office that gives you a roster that's built to win in the NBA. You're not going to win in the NBA. Larry Brown has coached the best team in the world. And also the worst team in the world. Do you think when Larry Brown somehow what from the pistons to the knicks that he forgot how to coach replied no no he just went from a world championship. Caliber roster to wait terrible roster. So he went from being most successful coach to be at least successful coach and I don't know why if you're Jay Wright. You wanna walking Tibet I can't see him coaching in the NBA someday. I can even see him coaching in New York the erratically. But leaving such a good situation that he has right now to take over such a bad situation that New York would offer. That doesn't make any sense I would never say never. But I'll be shocked at Jay Wright's Mexico's New York next story number three Seattle Seahawks are reportedly canceled a work out slash meeting with Colin can predict. After they could not get an assurance from him over the phone. That if they were just signed him to a contract he would end his pregame protest. Next season he simply would not commit to that. Didn't say I'm absolutely protesting but he just would not make any promises about any thing I. And he was reportedly then told well this probably best to just not even get on the plane and and can come out here. And so. That interest on a couple different levels because. For a wild. People and they were always wrong but it didn't stop him from saying it. Would say if the reading dog governing doesn't have a job is indicative of the protests that he's not any good but we now know that's not true of this story proves that's not true. The Seahawks were interested in bringing him in and reportedly told him don't come if you can't commit to cut it out to protest starting next season. That by definition means that he's good enough. What he's always been good enough that's always just been a lot. Did dating back to the origin of the he's not good enough story it was always a line. All of the data. Always suggested it was good enough to have a job in that lead we saw the bombs that some of these teams are going after when people would say it's got nothing do with the protest say they now either. That's they were either willfully ignorant right to the reality of the situation or lied I'll let you pick but they were never right when they said that. And now it's been clear for awhile but now it's crystal clear YouTube users were wrong. If you're somebody who said that you were wrong because here's an example of very public example the Seahawks think she's good enough to come up for work out. But because of the protest they say don't come for the work out that means it is because of the protest most people have understood that from ever. Hum now it's undeniable even if you were somebody push back on that. So it's interesting from that perspective it's also interesting from this perspective. So pretty principled guy. Now you can disagree with them I understand some of you do. I happen to agree with him and support his protest and have always thought it was incredibly courageous to put your career slash millions of dollars on the line. I'm to stand up for something you believe him. It is true that I happen to believe in the same thing he believes in but I'd like to think even if I didn't I would be I would admire. His.
