Jeff Hornacek Has Reportedly Been Offered the Suns’ Head Coaching Job


While four teams are busy fighting for their Playoff lives, the Suns are looking ahead, trying to figure out who their next head coach will be. According to Yahoo! Sports, that job is probably going to be given to Utah Jazz assistant (and former player) Jeff Hornacek: “One of the Phoenix Suns’ popular former players – Jeff Hornacek – has been offered the franchise’s head coaching job, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The Suns and Hornacek will work the weekend to finalize contract parameters on an agreement, sources said. Hornacek is eager to be the Suns’ next head coach. The Suns and Hornacek have already started work on assembling an assistant coaching staff. … The Suns met with Houston Rockets assistant J.B. Bickerstaff on Friday and have received permission to interview Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Steve Clifford. Clifford remains a strong candidate for head-coaching openings with the Bucks and Charlotte Bobcats. The Suns former interim coach, Lindsey Hunter, also interviewed for the job.”

    who cares who will coach them, they are in full tank mode, aiming for a top 3 pick

    that’s a tough roster to start off your head coaching career.
    he will be gone before his contract runs out. nobody wants to play d on that team

    It’s not like that. He is not expected to win right away. McDonough has a long term plan. Look at Doc Rivers in Boston.

  • roscoe

    it makes sense that they shunned D Marlee?

    unreal they hire jeff when they had a beloved former player in the wings.

    idk about the PHX front office.

    Dan Majerle took the job at Grand Canyon University like a week after he lost the Suns job man.

  • Ugh

    That’s a pretty fast rise through the ranks. It’ll be interesting to see how he goes.

  • roscoe

    irrelevant nbk… i know you read the articles…

    daN was burned as PHX cleaned house.

    it didn’t sit well with me, but what do i know

  • BugEyes

    They said the same thing to terry porter. but if they do give Jeff time he can worry about coaching and not winning right away. I think he can turn dragic into a pick n roll machine with the polish hammer

    ugh.
    .
    Ryan McDonough is the GM. He is not being bossed around by Robert Sarver like Lance Blanks was before him. Terry Porter was not ready to be a head coach. Jeff Hornacek on the other hand has been so good as an assistant that some management in Utah supported firing Tyrone Corbin in order to avoid losing Hornacek.
