Here's a name we haven't heard in a while. Former Celtics player and head coach Chris Ford has interviewed for Philadelphia's head coaching job.
Ford was the head coach in Boston from 90-91 to 94-95. He was here for the tail end of real Big 3's time here. And a funny thing happened as time went on. He went from 56 wins in his first season to 51, 48, 32, and 35 before he was let go. He's been a scout in Philly's organization. It's funny… I was recently wondering what he was up to.
My favorite tidbit about Ford is that he hit the first ever 3 pointer in NBA history
By the way… Philly… I say you pull the trigger on Ford right now. You don't want Tom Thibodeau. He's got no head coaching experience. You want a guy like Ford who's been there. Definitely.
