Popovich Supports Foreign Coaches in NBA
It should come as no surprise that Gregg Popovich, one of the first NBA figures to actively scout overseas during his earliest years with the Spurs, “absolutely” believes foreign coaches can do the job in the world’s top league.
“A lot of guys could be coaching in our league,” he said. “Basketball has become an international sport. The coaches have improved all over the world, just like players have. There are good coaches and good players no matter where one might look.”
