Stan Van Gundy might be a Warriors coaching candidatePosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Orlando Sentinel blog reporting on Stan Van Gundy and the Golden State Warriors:
Although he stresses he’s happy not coaching, former Orlando Magic and Miami Heat coach Stan Van Gundy appears to be leaving the door at least slightly ajar for a possible return to the NBA as coach of the Golden State Warriors.
Asked Thursday morning on 740 AM’s “Open Mike” show if he’s talked with the Warriors about their vacant head-coaching job, Van Gundy answered, “I have not met with them or anything else. There have been calls to gauge interest, and until you get a chance to actually talk to somebody, it’s even hard to say if they’re interested or if I would be [interested]. So we’re not at that point of even sitting down and talking yet.”
On Tuesday, the Warriors fired Mark Jackson after three seasons as their head coach.
Although TNT commentator Steve Kerr has been mentioned as the leading candidate for Golden State’s job opening, Van Gundy also has been mentioned as a potential candidate.
