Celtics Morning Joe: Who could, or should coach the Celtics if Doc walks?

Posted by shawn cassidy on May 26, 2013 at 6:15 AM

Well with Doc's job in limbo. Who could do the job if he decides to walk away? When I was watching the NBA Wired segment during game 3's Western Conference Finals. I thought Hollins had a good presence. He's done a great coaching job with this Memphis team for the past three seasons. He's got them in their Western Conference Finals in team history, but even so, his job isn't a for sure thing as well in Memphis. He's a coach that intrigues me if Doc no longer wants to coach. 

Outside of that, I haven't given much thought to the Celtics coaching job. I couldn't imagine someone like Jeff Van Gundy, or even his brother Stan. What about former Nets,and Mavs coach Avery Johnson? I don't see any of those coaches being  capable to lead Rondo and the Celtics.

I wrote about former Celtics assistant, and now Bulls head coach Thibs. But that's not even close to an option for the Celtics. It will be a hard task for Danny if Doc leaves. As much as I disagree with Doc at times, or  with his lack of planning, like he did this year with a new look roster,and with returning players like Green and Wilcox. I still want him on the sideline.

I could never see Danny coaching again if he had to on the fly. I don't think he would even think about that. I wouldn't even know where Danny would start in his coaching search. I just ask for a coach that could possibly work well with Rondo. I ultimately expect Doc back. I think he finishes his contract. As for more years after, it all depends where this team is at.

Doc and Rondo need to spend a lot of time together this summer. It's time for them to get serious about working out a new approach. KG and Pierce and Green should be involved too, but the main thing is Rondo and Doc putting their heads together.

Hollins doesn't seem to be afraid of Bigs. I like that.

I think danny coaching would be a complete disaster lol. I honestly don't know who I could see coaching this team besides doc until kg and paul are gone.
