    Juwan Howard Adds Familiar Face to Staff

    Link

    The newly-appointed Wolverines coach is adding former St. Joseph’s coach Phil Martelli to his staff, giving the first-time head coach who has never spent time on a bench at the collegiate level the benefit of an experienced, veteran head coach of over 20 years who has been a National Coach of the Year while winning and recruiting big at a mid-major program.
    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant … isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    In general, I think when people suggest that someone bring on an experienced coach that it's a dumb idea, but in this case I think it makes sense.

    I have seen only two great plays: Hamlet and put the ball into the basket

    Because he had years of college coaching experience. Howard has none.

    None at the collegiate level, but he is an experienced NBA assistant with his time at Miami.
