Terry Stotts, former head coach of the Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks, has taken a job in the NBA Developmental League.
The unfortunate part? He’s not going to be coaching – he’s going to “evaluate each of the League’s coaches and provide insight into improving their skills in order for them to elevate to the NBA.”
In his four seasons as a head coach, Stotts has a career record of 115-168. He was fired from both of his jobs. As the head coach of the Atlanta Hawks, he once told his team during a timeout in a close game that they were outmatched talent-wise, to play “wild” and “crazy” – sound advice, coach.
A guy who can’t elevate his his own skills to the NBA is going to instruct coaches on how to elevate their skills. Only in America, folks.
