Pat Riley says he will not coach againPosted by Inside Hoops
Whenever an amazing coach has called it quits and moved on to another line of basketball-related work, you can’t help but to wonder if he’ll eventually make a comeback to the profession.
Especially if the team he works for has a loaded, star-studded roster like the Miami Heat.
But Pat Riley will reportedly stick to executive offices.
The AP reports:
Heat President Pat Riley says he will not return to coaching, and says the team has a strong leader in Erik Spoelstra.
Riley spoke Tuesday at his annual end-of-season wrapup and touched on several topics including the disappointment of Miami’s loss in the NBA finals to the Dallas Mavericks. He lauded the Mavericks for winning the title, plus says he still believed the first Heat season with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as teammates was “a great year.”
This has nothing to do with Riley or the Heat, but I wonder if we’ll ever see Jerry Sloan on the sideline again.
