Default Re: Laimbeer resigns as Shock head coach.

I heard on the radio today…

hopefully he can land as an assistant for us (and eventually coach )

I think Laimbeer will be a good coach… if some organization can get over their life long grudge against him… from when he played.

from Chuck Daly last year (reference Sacramento Bee)

On why former Pistons center and current Detroit Shock coach Bill Laimbeer can't land an NBA head coaching job: "I think it must be because Billy made a lot of enemies when he was a player. But I tell you what. He is as smart as a whip. Someone is going to get darn lucky in this league. They just have to take a chance. I talked to the Maloofs about him when they were looking for a coach (last year), and they would have talked to him. But Geoff (Petrie) wasn't interested."
