Goorjian to coach United next season?
Heard this rumour the other day and now Boti's put it out there too.
I have two theories, and neither are based solely on Dreamtime stories.Full story
The first is the club already has negotiated a deal with Brian Goorjian — hallowed be thy name — to take United's reins from 2017-18 on.
Goorj, the NBL’s most successful coach, has been coaching in China since winning the championship with South Dragons in 2008-09 and will be available next season.
His family still is based in Melbourne and his daughter shortly will make him a grandfather.
Grandaddy Goorj makes total sense as United’s mentor.
So Theory #1 is the club will take its lumps with Demopoulos rather than sack him and take a chance on assistant Mike Kelly — a championship-winner under Goorj — or bring in someone such as Shawn Dennis.
