There's something about the phrase "Coach Stoudamire" that doesn't ring true to me. Damon doesn't see it that way.
As reported by the Tuscon Citizen's Steve Rivera:
Former Arizona All-American Damon Stoudamire says he would "love to be part of" the Wildcats' coaching staff this season or next."They know I'd work hard because that's who I am," Stoudamire said in a phone interview. "I know the game. I think it would be a dream situation to go back to my alma mater and help out. I think it would be a great opportunity. I know Tucson. I know Arizona.''
This is, after all, a former lead member of the Jail Blazers, who has had more than his share of incidents with illegal substances and the law. The guy has never carried a great rep as far as being a locker room guy is concerned, and even his on-court decision-making wasn't always stellar either. Coaching youngsters really seems like a stretch of an employment line for him.
