Sixers Interested in Doug Collins?

The Inquirer says the Sixers are asking if Doug Collins would want to leave his cushy TV gig for the privilege of coaching their miserable team. Riiiight: “An NBA source has confirmed that on Wednesday 76ers President and General Manager Ed Stefanski reached out to the agent of Doug Collins to gauge Collins’ interest in the team’s coaching vacancy. John Langel, Collins’ agent, could not be reached for comment. This move appears to be the first formal step taken by Stefanski, who to this point has said he was simply gathering information and sorting through lists and information. The 58-year-old Collins was also a ‘player’ in last season’s coaching search. A year ago, although Collins was said to be interested in the vacancy, he was never contacted by Stefanski.”

    Go and get Avery Johnson, tear this team up from the ground and put together a new winning identity. You got 1.5 seasons. Get to it.

    @Khalid: I know your a heavy Sixers fan, but Doug Collins isnt that bad of a selection. I have always felt the Sixers need to have more former players/contributors come back and show the new players what the franchise once was and can still be. LB or Doug wouldnt be a bad selection, but in my opinion you have to concentrate on getting a GM! Then fill in all other positions from there… If you let Stuffanski select the next coach and then fire him… that wouldn’t make ANY sense?!?!? Anyway they reached out to Avery and that isnt a bad choice either… There are options out there for a coach; but I would prefer someone who knows Philadelphia and what it takes to win here (in this rabid sports talk/media driven city)…
