Thumbs up Remembering Johnny "Redd" Kerr


RIP to our first Head Coach.

For those of you who dont know, he died at age 76 of prostate cancer.

“We were struggling to get people in the building to watch us play as an expansion team. We won only 16 games that first year, and one night the phone rang next to the coach’s seat. He just picked up the phone and said, ‘Can I help you?’ The voice asked, ‘What time does the game start?’ and Johnny said, ‘What time can you get here?’”

– Jerry Colangelo on Johnny “Red” Kerr
