    Is there precedent for this? Has there been a coach who returned and had near the level of success in his first run?

    I'm not sure what part of that you don't understand. Is this not obvious by now??

    The sad part is that he’s likely 100% serious. A guy like Rivers has to be obsessed with money since he’s coached well beyond reason. It’s like Shaq’s son committing to Arizona of all places prior to his health issue. We all know how obsessed with money he is with all the commercials he’s still doing.

    I think he has done well. Not sure even with Billy we are better. Why?we can't shot makes coaching way harder.
    KJ needs to play the 2 with Lewis at the 3 next year. Put Payne at the 4. Victor or Appleby at the point. Dont see any one but Nemhard leaving except Blacksheir. Lane and the Russian should help our shooting next year.

    Nope. K will hand pick a successor. It will be one of his guys.

    Coach Cal actually improved in his cheating ability after leaving the NBA. Does that count?;):D

    He wasn’t serious.
    It was delivered as a joke, with Rivers laughing as he made the comment.

    Norm Sloan came back for an encore at UF. And everybody hated him. Especially his players.

    Sloan came back and led us to our first tournament appearances in our history. Not sure you can say it was all negative in his return...
