Rafer Alston To Become Head Coach at Christian Life Center

by May 18, 2011

Adam Zagaria is reporting that, despite having no previous experience, Rafer Alston will become the head coach at the high school that produced DeAndre Jordan: “Alston, 34, was just hired as the new head coach at Humble (Texas) Christian Life Center, replacing former coach Carlos Wilson who’s headed to coach at Tyler Junior College. ‘I’ve had a good career, long career, 11 years,’ Alston said of a career that included stops in six NBA cities and a stint in China. ‘I had fun. I can’t complain about my NBA career. It’s been wonderful.’ Alston, the former Cardozo High star known as “Skip to My Lou,” said he wasn’t ruling out a possible return to playing professionally overseas or in the NBA, but he realizes that is unlikely. ‘I’ve had offers,’ he said. ‘Overseas is always an option. This summer some offers are going to come along at some point. People can always use a point guard.’ Still, he added, ‘Getting one more year older and doing this job, the chances are slim to none.’”
