West is a great leader and player BUT that does not mean he will be a great assistant coach.

If great basketball players were great coaches then why have we not Tu Holloway, Keith Jackson, Aaron Williams, Tyrone Hill, Derek Strong, etc.

If they were great leaders, why are they not at Xavier?

Lets be honest....not all players are ideal for XU coaches.

Villanova had zero Villanova NBA players on their coaching staff.

It is a possibility but Pat Kelsey could have stayed at X. It is about intelligence and understanding recruiting plus game plans.
