Honestly, outside of Pop, Thibs, and McHale there's really no one I would want to coach this team. I wish Doc would stay longer with us to help us win more championships. He's top 5 coach right now in the league and has a ring to prove it.

I'll take Kevin McHale, Mark Jackson, Rick Adelman, Scott Skyles or Scal..all capable, IMO.

I'd even consider our own Paul Pierce as an assistant...he's got a sound basketball mind, too.

KG as a Defensive coach...not sure how much basketball he'd want to be involved with, though....I thought I read somewhere that he wants to go away from the game for like 5 yrs once he's through.

Kevin McHale on our sidelines would be rather special.

I would love to get Larry Bird back in the Celtics family.  Maybe Scal as an assistant coach.  (I know it ain't gonna happen, though, just pondering out loud.  ;)

I don't know any names, but I hope they hire another someone who is from the Popovich coaching line.

Or Charles Barkley.

scal has gone on record on T&R saying he doesn't want to be a head coach, but would love to be an assistant somewhere.

Garnett? Nahhe wouldn't want to..

Probably someone who isn't a big name. Develop the new coach, hopefully (s)he is more offensive-minded though! I can't wait for an offense-orientated coach!

If that's what you want, Mike Brown is available.

Seriously, though, current Nets assistant Mario Elie seems to be a popular pick as a future head coach.  Maybe Bruce Bowen would be interested in following the broadcast-to-bench route.

if i go with a current college coach, its jay wight at nova or shaka stevens at vcu.  I believe doc will be around a few more years thus allowing these two to ain more experience.

if i go with a current or former nba coach, call me crazy, i like pj and believe he'd be available.  i also like svg and mike dunleavy.

I think I would have to see Tom Thibodeaux improve on offense and in his ability to manage minutes before I would feel comfortable seeing him as a Celtics head coach.

Yeah, it's a shame he didn't learn from Doc in those particular aspects of coaching...   ;D

I'd love Larry Bird as our coach or GM, but that would probably mean Danny is gone. If it's a rebuilding thing, McHale, Carlisle or Mark Jackson. Adelman or George Karl(the best outside Popovich) would be great for a couple of years, and Scals could be an assistant, Dooling or Cassell also.

But Doc will stay a Celtic for some time, and I like him as a person and as our coach, even if he drives us nuts with his rotations. We can enjoy the present and leave this for the future.

Danny Ainge doesn't like Mario Elie ;)



No way Danny hires Elie!
