 Norm Roberts told the New York Post yesterday that he was proud of his team and was looking forward to spending some time with his family this weekend. Robert got more than he wish for. He was fired today as expected. The search is on for a new coash for St. John. Names are coming out of a hat. Lke Mark Jackson, Seth Geenberg, Jay Wright, and Booby Knight. Jackson should be a top of the list. Jackson was great floor leader for it '85 Final Four team. One of the top assists men in the NBA. Very smart broadcaster and would be a good coach for College or Pros. Jackson just needs a chance to coach. Who knows the New Jersey Nets may want him too. After NBA Board of Governors give approval to new owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Jay Wright know New York City talent well. Wright steal NYC talent all the time. Seth Greenberg can bring good knowledge of the game. But can Greenberg bring blue-chippers to stay home. My choice is Wright because is he young, bright and street-wise coach. St. John must start all over again. Hopefully St. John make a good choice for school and New York!
