Avery Johnson is the new head men’s basketball coach at Alabama. At a job that requires not only coaching, but selling recruits and their families, Johnson is resorting back to his old days as Mavericks coach. “I learned so much working with Mark Cuban and working with our staff there and Keith Grant and Donnie Nelson and all those guys, so whether it was in terms of the type of athlete you should try to recruit for your system, hiring the right coaching staff, you know, a lot of the entertainment that the Mavericks provide for the fans at the games,” Johnson told the Tuscaloosa News. “We’re trying to adopt and incorporate a lot of what they do at our games.”
