Super late on this piece of the Paul Hewitt story, but here it is in case you’ve also been slackin’: Mark Price is interested in becoming the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets next head coach, according to fellow Jackets legend Dennis Scott, and Kenny Anderson would like a role on the eventual coaching staff, according to Kenny Anderson.
While lack of Division I head coaching experience would make Price a risky hire, there’s lit’rally nobody who would get Yellow Jackets fans more excited about the future of the program than the return of perhaps its all-time best player. He has coached Duluth High School and Australia’s South Dragons, worked as an assistant under Bobby Cremins, and has consulted and/or trained with the Hawks, Celtics, and Grizzlies at various points over the past few years.
Anderson, Price’s greatest successor at the one-time Point Guard U and also perhaps the program’s best player ever, has acknowledged he wouldn’t exactly be a hot head coaching prospect, but says he just wants to be involved with the program in some way.
