Sam Hinkie and the Philadelphia 76ers looks like they have finally settled on a head coach. According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports!, he reports that the Sixers have offered their head coaching position to San Antonio Spurs assistant Brett Brown.
We remember back on draft night, there was a report out of the New York Daily News saying that Brown had the Sixers’ head coaching job but that wasn’t exactly true as the team was still holding interviews. It all but seems that Brown will become the Sixers head coach unless contract negotiations break down.
Brown was one out of four coaching candidates that got a second interview. The other coaching candidates were Boston Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga, Atlanta Hawks assistant Kenny Atkinson, Chicago Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin, and Philadelphia 76ers assistant Michael Curry. It always seemed like Michael Curry had the inside track since he has been a part of the Sixers organization for a few seasons and coached the Sixers summer league team in Orlando.
If Brett Brown becomes the Sixers head coach then he will have a hard job ahead of him as this team is rebuilding, but its rebuilding in the right direction and if this all works out the Philadelphia 76ers could be a contender in the Eastern Conference in the next three to five years.
