Brian Kerle to coach the 'Bullets'?

Great coach and character undoubtedly but is he serious?

Looks like a brightcove short URL, used them a bit before, but if it's questionable, I'm not gonna try at work...

Brian is a legend.

GET HIM INVOLVED !!

Why doesn't he contact the NBL about his desire to be involved ??

APN are an out door media company. A bit odd that they would be watermarking this

Don't know how this has come about. Kerle notorious for not being a people person, can't imagine players wanting to play for him and hasn't coached any serious basketball since he got the boot from the nbl. Possible name being raised to try and stir nostalgic interest from old time fans.

lol at FB post, so he is scrounging around for a job then?

while we are at it Wildcats should sign the Black Pearl. actually that wouldn't be too bad to see Perth play a nice offence for the first time in years instead of Rob "Goorjian Lite" Bevo or hack Gleeson

Kearle seems passionate enough, certainly putting his rep on the line he was to be out of his depth. I like the nostalgic angle personally.

Wayne Hammerling used to cover the Bullets 'back in the day'. He was also the one doing that Derek Rucker vid last year. I think if Kerlie was that keen on coaching he would have stuck with the game somehow & somewhere. There is no doubt that Kerlie was responsible for the golden age of the Bullets, but he also has made some of the classic life/business/leadership mistakes your parents/teachers/leadership books warn you against, and from what I've heard, hasn't learnt from them.

I remember talking with the Bullets GM & one of the players (a Boomer squad member) on the last night Kerlie coached the Bullets. The GM was saying how Kerlie was going to get sacked, and I said "but Kerlie got you (the player) to play here"...trying to point out Kerlie's recruiting skills and the player just said "I didn't realise how bad it was here."

Those days were great days. I have fond memories of Boondall filled to capacity & the players were amazing. But those days are a memory. Basketball has changed a lot since then.

Whole page in the Courier Mail today was an interview with Brian Kerle. He says he doesn't want to coach but instead he wants to work in the front office.

Also he doesn't want them to be called the Bullets because of gun violence...
