He's a real general tho, his players often said that playing for him is like being a machine, you just have to execute what he wants you to. That could be a problem translating into the NBA, where usually players matter a lot more than coaches.
He also was Bargnani's first coach and expressed several times interest in coaching him again.

Let’s get this out of the way right now, shall we.

Do not -- NOT -- think for a second that Ettore Messina -- the Euro Flavour Of The Past Months -- is in the mix as the coach.

I cannot for a second think Bryan hands over a young team to a guy who’s never coached an NBA practice, let alone a game, or let alone a player. And nor should he.

Agree with Smith for once.
