Recently retired Jason Kidd wants the Nets' coaching job
Recently retired Knicks point guard Jason Kidd is angling for the Brooklyn Nets coaching job.
Recently retired New York Knicks point guard Jason Kidd needs to find something to do with his time now that he won't be playing anymore. Some have wondered whether or not he'll try to join a bench to get moving up the coaching ranks so he can eventually be the head coach of an NBA team, or whether he'd try his hand at doing television work as a studio analyst. We may be getting our answer about his future really soon.
CBSSports.com's Ken Berger confirms that Kidd is pursuing the Brooklyn Nets' head coaching vacancy. Also, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Kidd is angling for the Nets' coaching job and looking for assistants good enough to quell any worries about his inexperience in the coaching role.
Freshly retired NBA star Jason Kidd is pursuing the Brooklyn Nets' head coaching job and his candidacy has been discussed within the highest levels of the organization, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Kidd has been talking with associates about the possibility of making the immediate leap from a Hall of Fame playing career to a head coaching job, and has been working to identify a staff of assistant coaches who could help him overcome the significant learning curve, sources said.
The Nets have reportedly been pursuing Brian Shaw as a possible coaching candidate. Kidd has often been looked at as a coach on the floor because of his ability, leadership, expertise, and his experience running offenses and calling out defensive plays. But the lack of actual coaching experience could prevent him from getting back into the Nets organization.
