Hank Egan Rumors
Veteran basketball coach Hank Egan helped get Milwaukee Bucks interim coach Joe Prunty a job twice. The first one: hawking Anheuser-Busch products in San Diego after Prunty finished college. The second: a job on Gregg Popovich’s San Antonio staff as an assistant video coordinator.
Egan told Ramsey he did not watch James’ TV special, when he announced his decision to bolt Cleveland and sign with Miami, where he will team with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. “I didn’t care,” Egan said, adding that, as an unrestricted free agent, James “… had every right to do what he did.” As you would expect, defends the job Brown did with the Cavs: “… I think he deserved better. Based on his performance with the team the past five years, he deserves better. But we all know that’s not what always drives people being hired and fired in the NBA.”
After Egan was fired at Air Force in 1984, he spent 10 years as the head coach at the university of San Diego before going to the NBA. Eventually, he served as an assistant at Golden State, San Antonio and Cleveland. But his job with the Cavs, apparently, will be his last one. According to blog by David Ramsey in the Colorado Springs Gazette, Egan has retired — apparently for good. Egan tried to leave basketball in 2005, but he was lured out of retirement by the chance to work for Brown and coach James in Cleveland.
