Reggie Theus went directly from the league to being a head coach at New Mexico State and took a team that had been 6-24 to the NCAA tourney in two years and played a very competitive game again us in the first round and had that program poised to go on a long tournament run before taking an NBA job. I have a suspicion that the biggest hurdle for T.J. coaching at Texas is the lack of a degree.
Gordosan's suspicion is correct. You have to have a degree to be a basketball coach at Texas. It was indicated this last year during the recruitment of Isaiah Taylor, that at least in the fall, TJ was taking courses at Texas and helping out on a volunteer basis with the team. I did a quick search on The Google but did not find anything referencing this, so I assume that he still has not finished his course work.
I respect your opinion and think you bring a lot to this site its just that you approached it laughing and thinking it was crazy to even think this is possible. I don't think anyone in their right mind think he is ready now. But, the fact that maybe the greatest BB player to ever player wants to come back and lead this team is very exciting IMO.
