    Maybe not with the Jazz, but somewhere.

    Smart guy. Understands the game. Could run the flex in his sleep. He's tough and a good leader. Often seems puzzled by Ty Corbin's coaching.

    His commentary is starting to wear on me.

    I have no doubt in my mind that Harpring would be better than Ty.

    Now whether he'd be Phil Jackson or Pops would remain to be seen...

    But I know for a fact he'd be an upgrade over Ty Corbin. I can't see Harpring merely shrugging off these embarrassing loses as just "one game." Or rewarding guys for their lazy defense or chucking. And he's a damn smart guy. That's the other thing. Ty just doesn't come across as very sharp.

    I actually think Harping would be awesome. I think if the Jazz miss the playoffs this year then Ty could be on his way out.

    Harpring would atleast be better infront of the postgame camera. But I am concerned that, like Ty, he has no head coaching experience. And maybe worse, he has no assistant coach experience.

    Not that it matters, his kids are young, his wife is a doctor. I doubt the family dynamic would allow him to committ to a coaches schedule.

    I think Harpring has more of an Alpha Male personality than Corbin, this team would probably benifit from that.

    I think Harp would make a really good coach, but he should be an assistant first.

    The saddest part, Corbin is going no where. He will be the Jazz HC for at least the next 4 years.

    **** no. What's he done to prove he's a good coach, let alone would make a good head coach? I'd be so down with Harpring in a gosh darn New York minute. Smart, knows the game, has balls, can lead.

    Hornacek was supposedly brought in to be a shooting coach. Yet this team can't shoot. Nor can most of them hit their FT's. Makes me wonder exactly what he does...makes sure Ty has a marker for his clipboard?

    If this were to happen, we'd definitely have to get the band back together. We could follow every move -- from the very first Harpring scouting trip out on the high school football fields, to every "Woo!" shouted from the sideline, and of course every time he tripped over his own hustle while pacing up and down the sidelines. Where's the petition? I'll sign.

    Chomping at the bit for a white coach? Thanks for setting our fanbase back another twenty years.

    *UB's consecutive non-fartygaydick post streak is up to 2*
