More on Coach Reggie

Andy Katz writes:

"Former New Mexico State and Sacramento Kings coach Reggie Theus is on the verge of getting the job as head coach of the Los Angeles D-Fenders in the NBA Development League, replacing Eric Musselman, who left for an assistant’s job with Arizona State. The deal is done, according to a source, but Theus hasn't signed it yet; there is a tryout Saturday and Theus will be there. Theus has been anxious to get back into college basketball but hasn’t been able to get a quality sniff of late. Getting a head-coaching job, regardless of the level, is crucial for him to convince an athletic director and/or school president that he’s worthy of another shot."
That last paragraph is telling. He produced on the court in his short stint at New Mexico State but still needs to prove something to future collegiate employers. What's that about? Off court player problems? That, in and of itself, isn't usually much of a barrier if you win games.
