That’s obviously premature, but the C’s have hired Frank to replace Tom Thibodeau as Doc’s top assistant, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
Frank is a defense-first coach whose Joisey offense was never known for its creativity. He’s a nice replacement for Thibs, but the importance of this hiring goes beyond this season. He’s not the favorite to replace Doc Rivers—no one is—but Frank is now in the conversation should Rivers step down after the 2011 season.
And that’s a good thing. He’s young, he’s a worker and he can already coach an elite defense. He’s a nice asset to have.
We’ll have more later.
