This abbreviated version of the Salt City Hoops Saturday Show (Sadly, we forgot to press the record button during the first half of the radio show) talks about the coaching staff of the future. Who are some good options for the Jazz’s next coach, and what characteristics should he (or she) have? Finally, we look back at the Salt City Hoops’ show’s history. How did Salt City Hoops come about? What was our favorite moment in show history? Austin Horton, Andy Larsen, and SCH founder Spencer Ryan Hall join us.

  1. Andrew says:

    I really liked Avery Johnson back when he was the Dallas head coach. He doesn’t seem to be doing very much right now, and he’s always seemed to me to be classy and hardworking guy. His point guard experience could be a valuable asset for Trey Burke, too.

  2. Brock says:

    I like Avery Johnson as Andrew said also.
    Surprise option is Steve Kerr.
    Scott Skiles is not great for development.
    I like Lionel Hollins also but he publicly attacked management on the grizz so most teams don’t put up with that.
    I hope Thibbs and Vaughn(Magic coach) get fired so we can have them though.

      Why in the hell is Scott Skiles in the conversation? He is currently coaching the worst team in the NBA!

      I’ve always liked the idea of Steve Kerr as a coach. I also believe that Matt Harpring would be a good defensive minded coach. Its too bad he doesnt have any asst coaching experience. While co announcing with Boler, Matt is very aware of what’s lacking and who is out of position during the game. He played tough and has a high basketball IQ

      My top choices are Mike Longabardi and Stan Van Gundy

  3. Geoff says:

    I think the obvious ideal coach (though not sure he’s interested) would be Phil Johnson. If I was calling the shots I would beg him. Please Phil!

    • Kory says:

      Listening to interviews with coach Johnson, I don’t know how he could possibly communicate with the players. I would rather have Big T

  4. Avoid any kid of pills containing synthetic chemicals that can
    prove to be harmful. You will more than likely
    have to be on medication to control them. For instance, I had a client who cut back on fast
    food, but began drinking large quantities of sugar-sweetened tea.
