Chris Harriman- Doing Australia proud

The recent passing of Rick Majerus has highlighted the excellent coaching work of a lesser known Aussie and ex-NBL rookie of the year runner up, Chris Harriman.
Chris has since taken up the assistant coaches role at Nebraska and by all accounts is doing an excellent job.
Could he be the first Aussie to get a coaching gig in the NBA? I think it's a realistic goal.
I remeber Chris Harriman playing as a junior and a little as a Sydney Kings dev. player. A very good defender and passer. Well done Chris and best of luck for the future.

Cos he recruited Salecich who left after 10 minutes because Majerus was/is a total lunatic.

I was coached by Harry in college, he is a good guy but I think he's found he's niche as a international college player recruiter.
Not many assistants get big time head coaching jobs unless taking over from the head coach at current school, they tend to go to lower level schools.
In the future he may have a chance due to his relationship w/ Dunlap but other than that I think he will stay in college.
