Joyce to be announced as Opals coach
New Opals coach Brendan Joyce says there was too much talk of winning a gold medal before the London Olympics, declaring it is time for the team to ''walk the walk''.Well, this is going to make that automatic Joyce filter he made legal threats to force into existence awkward on Hoops a bit more awkward.
Joyce will be officially installed as Opals coach on Thursday, replacing Carrie Graf, who guided the team to a bronze medal at last year's Olympics.
He has a solid pedigree, having played 289 games in the National Basketball League, coached the Wollongong Hawks to a championship, led the Gold Coast Blaze and had eight years as a Boomers assistant coach.
''I am into walking the walk, not talking the talk,'' said Joyce, who had Eddie McGuire as his No.1 referee on his resume.
