It's time to bring back the official defensive assistant coach. Bring in Skiles please.

Skiles would be a terrible fit with the veteran team, and I am not sure he can even be an assistant to anyone.

I love Skiles as a coach who can get a young team on track and disciplined, kind of a more harsh version of Jerry Sloan.  But his ego always gets the best of him at some point, and he doesn't do as well with veteran teams.

Not to mention, his strength is more discipline than defense. 

I think he needs to go to a team like Washington, that needs structure for their young players, or he should go to College, where I think he would be a GREAT coach, in a Bobby Knight sort of way.
