Ewing Disappointed in No Coaching Interest
Hall of Fame center, Patrick Ewing, 50, is quite aware of the NBA head coaching positions that are opening up by the week and quite frankly, it’s frustrating for the big man to see General Mangers not give him a passing thought when considering candidates for their vacancy.
“It’s just disappointing, but I’m just hoping and waiting somebody gives me a look,” Ewing told CSNNW.com. “I just need an opportunity. All it takes is one team.”
Yet, up to this point, no one has called inquiring about Ewing’s services. Ewing has been an NBA assistant coach for eight seasons, but widely known as big-mans coach/developer, a label he’s desperately trying to shed.
“I’m not just a big-mans coach, I consider myself to be a well-rounded coach,” Ewing said. “Just because you played a certain position during your playing days, doesn’t mean you don’t have the knowledge and skill-set to help the guards or forwards improve their games. It’s unfortunate to be pigeonholed into one category. That’s just what I want to prove to teams, that I feel and know that I’m a all-around good coach.”
