Default what's up with jeff van gundy?

does he not want to coach anymore or it's just that nobody wants to hire him?

do you guys not remember just how much hair he lost while coaching the Knicks and Rox?

Coaching seemed to take a lot out of him and he seems happy to be making bank announcing. Hell, he would have to royally screw up to get canned from broadcasting while in coaching you can easily get fired due to things beyond your control.

If he wanted a gig, I am sure he could get one. He has options. Continue to grow as a broadcast announcer on the biggest stage or go into coaching. Broadcasting is a lot less stressful and maybe he wants less stress in his life. He seems to thoroughly enjoy being on TV.

He has the best job in NBA broadcasting with zero pressure. And he should leave that why?

What he is doing now is far less stressful and he's good at it.

I honestly think he's enjoying broadcasting so much.

The fact that he agreed to do that Paula Abdul Gorrilla commercial speaks volume of how happy he is

He gets to watch/participate in as many games, give the same critiques, make none of the decisions, deal with none of the headaches and in turn make a little less money.

On top of that, he gets to interact with his brother probably daily and still feel "in the loop" of the NBA
