Wow! Former NBA player and coach, Avery Johnson is coming to the University of Alabama to coach Crimson Tide Basketball.

The Crimson Tide will hire former NBA coach of the year to replace Anthony Grant.

Can Avery Johnson coach on the college level?  Because he’s had success at the professional level doesn’t make it an automatic at the college level.

I’d love to see Johnson come and turn this program around, something that Grant couldn’t do in my opinion because he couldn’t recruit the best players.  This is where I believe Johnson will be most successful.  He brings a high-profile personality to the program.
