I don't care if he has no experience, you have to admire him as a man and as a father. I think players would respect him and play hard for him. This would be a bold move by Pat Haden. I think parents would love this guy and want their sons playing for him.
That would be interesting indeed. At this point anything is better than KO and I'm sure dfish would bring in some assistants with NBA experience
I think we need to go after somebody who's already coached before and knows recruiting. I don't doubt a Derek Fisher could be a good coach, but USC shouldn't be the type of place where a guy goes to cut his teeth as a coach. With the kind of money we can pay, we should get a guy like that after he's done that somewhere else.

CPC knew nothing about recruiting when we brought him in. This would be a bold move by Haden. We just can't attract a top flight coach from another school. Might as well try something different.
Not a laker fan. But Fish is a competitor. I wouldn't be shocked to see him coaching a NBA team in the not too distant future.
Right, but he'd been a coach before. I don't think Derek Fisher has been a coach at any level before.
A "move" of any kind would be "bold" by Haden at this point.
Ridiculous..that we still have CKO.
DFish learned from some of the best coaches in the NBA (Phil Jackson, Dallas Mavs coach, Jerry Sloan). Shouldn't be a problem. We need someone young who can work tirelessly.
I agree with you on the last half of it but none of those guys had any success at the college level, and we have no idea if a Derek Fisher would do well, or be another Clyde Drexler. If you want a young guy who'll work tirelessly, give the job to Justin Huston.
His college team: Arkansas little Rock nickname is the Trojans, and unlike many NBA stars he does have a college degree, a prerequisite for coaching at the USC level in NCAA .

I'm very biased - John Peterson's my 1st cousin. He's been very successful as a head coach and as an assistant...

Need coaching experience first, I hope it doesn't happen

No experience. Bad idea.
Would love to have DFish as our next head basketball coach!
I think he's more likely to be the NBA commissioner to ever coach at USC.
Coaching takes up alot of time.. I'm sure he would like to spend more time with his kids and be there for the things he may miss.
ID pass either way. The right guy is out there
Look, if we're going to be serious about basketball we start with Calipari and go down from there. We are SC. Hire and pay for the best.
I'd personally throw a boatload of cash (and perhaps even a boat) to Shaka Smart
Brad Stevens would be a huge pick up in my opinion. Look what he's done at Butler.
On the job training, just like football!
Like Fish's competition and he has great character.
he would definitely be able to teach the team to flop
This would not be like hiring Pete Carroll. It would be like hiring Brett Favre.
And no recruits want to play for a guy who wears Wranglers.
