“Obviously I have a very strong relationship with the Collins family; that’s something that goes without saying, so of course Chris and I have talked. But I have had no formal conversations with Northwestern.”
Brian James Rumors
Philadelphia 76ers assistant coach Brian James said he has not had any formal talks with Northwestern University to become an assistant coach with the men’s basketball team. Chris Collins, son of Sixers coach Doug Collins, was recently named the head coach there. “I have not talked to anyone about a position,” James, reached this morning by phone, said. “I have talked to Chris since he got the job and I’m very happy for him. We talked about his future. As far as I am concerned, I’m here waiting to see what happens.”
Collins is the one making the decision, however, and, according to well-placed sources, his staff is already beginning to scatter.
