Informative Joey Wright named 36ers coach; three year deal
JOEY Wright today will be named the 11th coach of the Adelaide 36ers, starting a journey of redemption for the once mighty NBL club.
The man who steered Brisbane Bullets to the NBL championship in 2006-07 has accepted a three-year deal to restore the Sixers to their former greatness.
"I think with the roster it is realistic to aim for the championship," Wright said.
"That's the goal.
"The reality of sport is you set out to do one thing and you might come underneath that. So if your goal is just to play finals and you fall short?
"If we can keep Gibbo (Adam Gibson) then we start from a strong position.
"But I've only just got the job and have so far had zero contact with the players."
