Alvin Gentry No Longer Interim

by May 11, 2009

Suns GM Steve Kerr officially gave Gentry the seal of approval: “As expected, the Phoenix Suns are sticking with coach Alvin Gentry. Suns general manager Steve Kerr removed the interim tag from Gentry’s title on Saturday, calling him ‘the right man to lead our team into the future.’ Kerr said when the season ended that his first order of business was to re-sign Gentry, who took over the struggling Suns on Feb. 16 after coach Terry Porter was fired just four months into his first season with the club. Gentry’s contract is for two years with a third-year option.”
