Former NBA'er Kenny Anderson takes job coaching Jewish school

Kenny Anderson

Former NBA all-star Kenny Anderson has found a full-time coaching gig. At a Davie, Florida Jewish High School.


Anderson apparently lives down the road and has been looking for work as a coach for some time. He briefly coached a minor league basketball team in Atlanta. He was told he needed a degree to get a job. He got it. There were rumblings he would end up on the staff at the University of Miami, but that never happened.

So he took a job coaching the Posnack Jewish Day School basketball team. Posnack is a small 1-A school that isn't exactly known for hoops. He apparently got the job after talking to a school parent on Twitter.

We say good for Kenny. We got to know him when he was coaching the minor league team in Atlanta and he was doing some basketball analysis work. He's a really good guy who wants nothing more than to teach and be a successful coach.

He was an all-everything college basketball player at Georgia Tech and had a solid 15-year career in the NBA. According to this story, he took the job in part because it was a chance to prove he can make a team better with coaching.

We applaud him. And we'll try and keep up with how he does. If he can make the Posnack school a High School power, he'll prove he can do anything.

Good luck coach:
