Doc’s Replacement to Be on the Bench?
Posted by r1zzo23 on July 5, 2007
There have been thousands of fans that have been calling for Doc to be axed as the coach of the Celtics (myself included). It just didn’t seem as if he knew how to develop the young talent that Danny had stockpiled on the roster, perhaps the most important job of whoever was to take over as coach of the Celtics. Doc’s replacement may not be too far away from him on the bench starting this season.
Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald is reporting that Dwane Casey, former head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves, could possibly be coming to Boston as an assistant coach.
As for a new assistant, Dwane Casey is still in the mix after losing out on the head coaching job with Seattle. Former Houston aide Tom Thibodeau has been hired to assist in Washington, but his candidacy here was said to be more a case of the Rockets pushing for him.
Maybe not the candidate we would all hope for, but a change has got to be something we could all look forward to, especially if this season gets off to a bad start. Doc’s a great guy, but if he can’t get this team to at least 38 wins this season, he’s got to go.
