Quin Snyder: NBA Coach? Google thinks there might be some baggage
Having completed the worst season in NBA history a few short weeks ago, Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Bobcats moved on to the next item on their agenda – hiring the coach who will be tasked with cleaning up their remarkable mess.
Let’s just say that a familiar name that made their short list wasn’t exactly one that popped into the heads of anyone who has followed Mizzou basketball in their lifetime:
Yes, this would be the same Quin Synder who bumbled his way through the last half of his eight-year run as Mizzou’s head coach. When he was relieved of his duties in 2006, the glory days of his Elite Eight appearance in 01-02 were forgotten and his new legacy had started to take shape.
We could go through all the tales and rumors of malfeasance by Quin, but we’ll just let Google suggestions tell the story of how Snyder is remembered:
Anytime you can get the words “affair”, “drugs”, “divorce” and “scandal” in your top 5, it’s a safe bet that “great basketball coach” won’t be climbing up the list anytime soon.
But hey, this is the NBA, maybe comparing the quality of road beef and telling stories of how you boned your player’s girlfriend (alledgedly) is what makes a coach appeal to his team. If not, then he can always show them tapes of him slapping the floor at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
That seemed to work wonders in Columbia.
