Awesome news, NCAA coaches (except Larry Brown) can't coach in the NBA. Now just say no to Brian Shaw (lol) and to any other coach who can't teach offense.

Bring Iavaroni !!!

If Brian Shaw is selected as coach of the Magic, I'm ready to forget there is a NBA team in Orlando. I still remember after a game he played in during an interview that he didn't even know who was the next team the Magic were scheduled to play. He was one of the most disinterested players the Magic ever had. He was a demotivator because of his lack of interest in the game. He played only for the money, not for the love of the game.

I agree... NO Brian Shaw! Never liked him when he was a player here.

Iavroni seems like the way to go... but when you have Steve Nash running your offense, ANY coach can look good.

Oh come on Billy. Gators BB is a BOYS GAME. Heck, most of your players are not even old enough to buy a beer legally.

Go to the NBA where the MEN are. The chldren will do fine without you!!

Billy is fine where he is....4 or 5 great freshmen coming in & 3 may be starting..He has said several times his family comes before BB...I just hope Urban doesn't mind making less than Billy
