How many black head coaches are in the NBA right now
there have been 20 players that have became coaches. lets not forget presidents of a team.
I heard around 100-150k for college coaches and 575k for NBA coaches.
NBA coaches get paid more. College coaches only get paid for about 40 games while the NBA coaches have to coach 82 or more games.
0 Phil Jackson was the closest in 3 years
yes, most players have agents, or their own trainers
It depends on who you are talking about.
At one time, there were player-coaches in the NBA such as Lenny Wilken's and Bill Russell. Now, it is prohibited by the collective bargaining agreement.
Coaches like Jim O'Brien - Pacers Gregg Popovich - Spurs Stan Van Gundy - Magic never played in the NBA and just studied basketball for the life of coaching.
Bernie Bickerstaff & Alvin Gentry are 2 that come to mind
