Avery Johnson To Coach Again?

By mrehome


The ‘Little General’ that we all knew him by Avery Johnson could be getting into coaching again in the NBA.  As we know, Johnson is an NBA Analyst for ESPN and has recently been contacted by the New Jersey Nets and Rod Thorn according to SportingNews and Fanhouse.

League sources told FanHouse that Thorn inquired about Avery Johnson and his interest in the Nets job through his representatives on Wednesday. The former Dallas coach has already interviewed for openings in Philadelphia and New Orleans and looked to be the frontrunner for the Hornets job, but he is believed to have interest in joining New Jersey.

Johnson has been a top candidate for several coaching jobs around the NBA after two seasons with ESPN.

He has coached for six years and has compiled 299 wins and 129 losses and in the post season he had 33 wins and 30 losses.  All which were with the Dallas Mavericks.
