    Default Kevin McHale named new Houston Rockets head coach

    The Houston Chronicle reports:

    After a month-long search and long sessions debating the merits of three finalists, the Rockets offered McHale their head coaching position on Friday. McHale was chosen over Boston assistant Lawrence Frank and Dallas assistant Dwane Casey after meeting with Rockets owner Leslie Alexander on Wednesday to complete the interview process.

    Though McHale is more celebrated as a Hall of Fame player who among other things inspired Rick Pitino’s rant about the inability to recapture the Boston glory days than as a coach, the Rockets were drawn to his apparent abilities as a leader and motivator.

    Cool. I hope he has good luck with them if he accepts. If he gets them to the playoffs and maybe even wins a series he'd be a success.

    I hope not because I like him on television doing what he does.

    why?

    Word around the block is they canned Adelman because he didn't play the young guys, instead he tried to make the playoffs

    now they move to McHale who never had to teach anyone anything?

    Morey has done a great job getting talent, but you can't play everyone, seems like Morey's head is getting bigger than JKidd's kid's head

    McHale's first move? Push to sign Joe Smith.

    Are these the best Houston could do in terms of a coaching hire?

    They should've just went for a college coach with a name factor.

    awwww haha I thought he was funny with his Bird talking trash stories + he kept Chuck in check since Chuck respects him so much. It was better than the Charles/Webber tagteam

    Its weird, Adelman, Larry Brown and Sloan are teamless, while Mike Brown and McHale are getting good offers
