Moore: Better Than 50/50 Chance Brett Brown Is Coach Next Season
With Bryan Colangelo the new man in charge of the 76ers Front Office there are questions about the future of Head Coach Brett Brown who has taken the brunt of the media bullets during the rebuilding process.
Sixers Beat Writer Tom Moore says there's a good chance Brown will be the Head Coach to start the 2016-2017 season but his long term job security doesn't look promising:
"I think there's a better than 50/50 chance that Brett Brown starts the season next year as the Coach. But in Toronto (Bryan Colangelo) fired Sam Mitchell a little over a year after he was Coach Of The Year after they got off to a slow start. He changes, in Toronto, pretty much changed everything in terms of the Front Office, the Analytics People, staff, a lot of things. So there's going to be a lot of changes and part of it with Brett too might depend on (who they bring in); he is perceived as developing young guys pretty well but if they trade for some veteran guys or sign some veteran guys that could affect things. I would say better than 50/50 he'll be back to start the season but Bryan Colangelo is going to do what he thinks is best. He did say (Brett) deserves a chance better but then later he talked about changes, 'It's the summer of change' and he mentioned the coaches, so it's really hard to say at this point."
Listen to what Moore had to say about Josh Harris' troubles with public perception of the hiring of Bryan Colangelo, the influence of Jerry Colangelo on the 76ers and what potential hiring could have kept Sam Hinkie from resigning and why:
