Brian Hill Leaving For Detroit

Posted on: July 24th, 2009 by Sebastian Pruiti Comments

It is official, Brian Hill is leaving the Nets.  Fred Kerber reports:

"Brian is going to Detroit," team president Rod Thorn said. "He is a terriffic coach and a better guy. Solid all the way. He did a great job and we hate to lose him. His coaching credentials are impeccable."

You guys already know how I feel about it, but the move makes sense for Coach Hill, who ends up getting a multi-year deal and he doesn't have to take a 50% paycut.  There is no question in my mind that the quality of the playcalling will go down this year.

Still undecided is Coach Roy Rogers, who has been offered a multi-year deal by Rutgers.  No word on when the decision will be made.
