Default Sam Vincent to be named Bobcats head coach

Quote:
Sources: Vincent to coach Bobcats

RICK BONNELL

Barring a most unlikely last-minute snag, Dallas Mavericks assistant coach Sam Vincent will be the Charlotte Bobcats' next coach by Friday.

Two sources close to the situation confirmed Wednesday that Vincent has accepted the job. It's now down to a few contract details, and it's expected there will be a news conference Friday, introducing Vincent as Bernie Bickerstaff's successor.

Vincent has never before been an NBA head coach and is not the lead assistant to Mavericks coach Avery Johnson. However, he has a wide range of experience, most notably as the Nigerian national coach. Perhaps his best victory was coaching Nigeria to a victory against a heavily favored team from Serbia and Montenegro in 2006.

He also coached the Fort Worth franchise to the championship game in the NBA developmental league playoffs two years ago.

A former point guard, Vincent played seven seasons in the NBA, including a stay with the Chicago Bulls, when he paired with Michael Jordan, now the Bobcats' managing partner.

Well, we zeroed on on Vincent and got him...now to get a good lead assistant (preferably a veteran coach).

Welcome to the board!! Hope to see you posting here alot!!

I'm not totally sure I like this. I would much rather have taken Paul Silas but maybe the Front Office knows more than I do.

I agree with you, Bobcat4Ever. Paul Silas is the coach that I hoped we would select. I know that the MJ and Bernine were looking for an energetic coach like Avery Johnson. Is Sam Vincent that kind of person?

Obviously Silas didn't have what they were looking for. And apparently Vicent impressed those two like no one else could. Let's just hope it was a good decision.

He said he'd accept the job if it was offered to him.
