And, on the other hand, why would the Nets want him? He failed miserably in Boston and is no longer a hot name in the college ranks. He's a great coach but the job he has done at Louisville hardly warrants another shot at the NBA.
I posted this on TBK, but Cal made a great point in Bounce Back that once you fail in the NBA, you are a pariah there. Coaches like Pitino, Cal, Mike Montgomery, Lon Kruger, and Tim Floyd (twice) failed in the NBA and once a college coach fails, they never really get a second chance.
