Breaking News: O'Brien Sixers Next Head Coach?
Phil Martelli and Jameer Nelson sat in on the Phillies broadcast in the 2nd inning today. As always, they both came off as very classy individuals. During the conversation, Martelli made the off-cuff, surprising remark that, from what he heard, a former Hawk could be named the new Sixers Head Coach as early as tomorrow: Jim O'Brien. This would be very surprising news, given that, according to certain media members, in particular Howard Eskin, O'Brien would want nothing to do with the Sixers' job as long as Allen Iverson was still in town. Stay tuned.
The AP is now confirming this story, according to philly.com.
