Great Move For Phoenix Suns
Posted by Nancy on June 13, 2013
The recent announcement that Jeff Hornacek had been named head coach of the Phoenix Suns was met with much excitement among the Arizona crowd. That’s not surprising given that he played for that team for six years (1984-1992) during which time he became a beloved member of that Arizona squad. He had been currently serving as assistant coach for the Utah Jazz under the direction of head coach, Tyrone Corbin and was also much loved and respected by Utah fans who will no doubt be sad to see him go. This, however, is a great move for Hornacek and a smart play by the Suns management who realized that other teams (including Charlotte and Philadelphia) had interest in acquiring the 50 year old 3-point shooting whiz. He will be missed by players and fans alike in the Utah market but is wished well in his new endeavor.
