Former NBA coach Avery Johnson has verbally agreed to become the head coach at Alabama, according to reports from ESPN. The 50-year old current ESPN analyst most recently coached the Brooklyn Nets from 2010-12.
The funny side to this is that his son, Avery Jr., is a SEC freshman point guard at Texas A&M.
ICYMI last week Bama offered Gregg Marshall $4 million a year, but he decided to stay at Wichita State, making just $3 million a year.
What do you think? Is this a good SEC hire?
