The Houston Rockets have hired Kevin McHale as the new head coach

Blogged under Big Rockets News, Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Friday 27 May 2011 at 2:34 pm

The Houston Rockets have signed 53-year old Kevin McHale to a 3-year deal to take over as the team’s head coach. McHale last was a head coach in the NBA back in 2008-09 with the Timberwolves and he was 20-43 (31.7%). He has coached parts of two years in the NBA and he is 39-55 (41.5%). McHale was elected into Basketball’s Hall of Fame as a player back in 1999. He played in 971 games in his NBA career and he averaged 31.0 minutes, 17.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.7 blocked shots per game. The Rockets must be hoping that McHale can coach up the team based on how good of a player he was. The Rockets have a lot of talent on the roster, so they might not be too patient with McHale if he gets the team off to a slow start.

    “uhhh, Houston, you have a problem…” good luck with him. He only had about 10 years to do something in Minnesota, and, despite him being a native Minnesotan, we much more enjoyed his past than his current/future…

    I tend to agree with you Joe. I think Frank Vogel would have been a much better choice to run the show for the Rockets. It will be very interesting to see if McHale can do a better job in Houston than he did in Minnesota.
