Ok… that was an admittedly deceptive headline aimed at grabbing your attention. But it's not false. Danny's son Austin will officially be named head coach of the Maine Red Claws today.
for the Cougars. He was an assistant coach at Southern Utah in 2007,
and in 2008 became a scout for the Boston Celtics. When the D-League is
not in season he will continue his duties as a Celtics scout. He and
Claws GM Jon Jennings are currently working on the rest of the coaching
staff, which should be announced and finalized sometime in the next
couple of weeks.
Why didn't they just call them the Maine Mini-Celtics? Or at least the Maine Leprechauns or something?
I think a road trip is in order this year. I might have to take the drive up to Portland to check these guys out. Should be a fun time.
