36ers New Coach

The last couple of days have changed things. I'm backing 90% that Gaze will be announced on a 3 year deal, decision made by NBL. Need a squeaky clean nice guy that everyone loves, results not important at this stage unless Larry pumps some money in and throws the top new star in.
In the wake of everything can't see them going with rookie coach or someone international. To be honest was terrified Gaze was going to get job but now just want all this shit over and start afresh. Hopefully a decent couple of assistants named, maybe a succession plan. Hell, bring in Paul Roos even, had a background in basketball and has runs on board in sorting out cultures.
Safe to say KB has 0% of getting job now, in fact pretty low of any job if involved in coverup.
Roster will be cleaned out, DJ, Drmic, McVeigh and Teys to stay unless they come out and publically back Joey.

Gaze is terrible but club needs good pr, at least he's a nice guy and media friendly. And worse he would do would equate to being told off by your nanna. Already think he had been spoken to, this seals the deal. And would think could bring Giddey with him.

Kevin Brooks believes he is the right man for the job, per this report from 10 news:

https://twitter.com/10NewsFirstAdl/status/1232935117036937217?s=09

Brooks says one of the first things he'd do as coach is contact the Adelaide crows coach to see how they do things over there.

Also said he'd move training to another location where they could put the team's slogans on the walls to help change the culture.

Finally, he's said that he believes the Sixers could contend for the title next year under his watch.

He's served his apprenticeship, is it time to hand him the reigns?

He might not come, but Nielsen has coached the bigs at Perth and apart from Cooke that's been a success. Hopefully he can help DJ play some D.
He’s currently an assistant in the G League so would know most imports games and might already have a rapport with some.
From all reports he’s a great guy and coach.
He’s been in the spurs and Perth program which speaks for it self.

Start fresh. No pressure on a first year coach.
Clear all coaches out. White can go (could have breached club policy).
Get Giddey and surround him with the correct players/imports
Let’s stop being the problem child of the NBL (Joey driven) and move forward.

KB is desperate, if he doesn't get the gig he's screwed. All or nothing, but as main assistant he would be viewed by general public as being fully aware of problems at club. If their is a major review, which seems inevitable,then a cleanout would be recommended.

I would be happy to see KB get the job in an ideal world but there's just something about him that doesn't really strike me with much confidence when it comes to being a head coach. I don't even really know what it is but I just feel like it could be a mistake to appoint him on the basis he's a liked past player. I would love to be proven wrong though and i do like what he's said so far about certain little things to to do with culture and it shows that he's aware of issues already and thinking about things outside the box.

I'm actually really surprised at the amount of support there seems to be for Gaze to coach Adelaide.

Boti mentioned that Smyth could be an option again but I always have concerns about revisiting the success of past eras and I think that time has truly passed. I'd think it would be a better idea for him to work with someone like Brooks as an assistant. In saying that though, Adelaide is a club that's at it's best with a local flavour and I think having someone that the fans can identify with and help reunite the club is probably more important than immediate results. And that's not to say that you couldn't have both with Smyth or Brooks etc but I don't think it would be an appointment on the basis of being the best available option.

I think Paul Henare has a lot to offer as a coach and is certainly someone who could come in with a clean slate, he would be high on my list.

If you appoint a green skin in KB you are taking a risk. Andrew Gaze is a legend as a player but as a coach lurched from loss to loss with a win sprinkled on top.

Ideally you need a cleanout of the coaches and start afresh. With the players, I think you could almost say Big Kev might be out in the cold and DJ, Drmic, & McVeigh are probably going to be the basis of Sixers21

"Could it be that Gaze just couldn't coach Bogut?"


Did you watch any of the time he was at Sydney? He's a nice guy and all but his personality is too "heart on sleeve" to be a coach. When things were going well he was all smiles and enthusiasm on the sidelines. As soon as things started to go wrong his shoulders would slump and he'd sit down with his hands in his pockets and sulk. I saw him give up time after time and his team did too.

He made some progress in x's and o's and started to move away from the shuffle but he just didn't cut it as an in game coach. Had nothing to do with Bogut or any other personnel

Smythe had no idea as a coach, he was just the face with Breheny actually doing all the coaching. Remember how they started having conversations before going into huddle at timeouts and commentators were all for this amazing communication Phil had. Reality was that Breheny was telling him what to do. That disastrous stint Smythe had in charge of boomers highlighted it when Breheny was back in Adelaide getting Sixers prepared. This was horse's mouth from guys like Cattalini, said Smythe literally would freeze in timeouts.
Also heard that KB and Joey weren't seeing eye to eye the last couple of years. But still have to sweep everyone out and start afresh.

I don't like the sound of Smyth being involved in the selection of the coach plus possibly hanging around. He and Gaze are reasonably close Gaze brought him during the season to help him do some coaching at the Kings a year or two ago.

Personally I would like to see a clean break from the old regimes of KB and/or Smyth.

Smythe didn't do any direct coaching with the Kings: he just watched and reviewed their processes. While I agree the 36ers might be better off with a clean break, to be fair Smythe did form an accurate assessment of Gaze's coaching: essentially poor execution of key details on-court, and Gaze over-complicating things.

I hadn't seen or heard anything that made me confident in KB's ability to head coach in the NBL, and the drama that was this season only furthers my belief in cleaning out the coaching staff and starting fresh.

Bevo, Forde, Neilsen all sound quite palatable candidates.

Next year would have to surely be a rebuilding year, unless we do a Cairns and hit jackpot with imports and pick up a decent local or 2, it's going to be ugly. Philadelphia brought in Brown to lead them through process, probably should have been replaced now they're playoff team and Brown has struggled with expectations. I personally think Gaze is a terrible coach, but a good PR piece. If they can bring in a succession plan with someone like Nielsen as associate head coach, let Gaze take the lumps next year then hand the reigns over.
The next coach will unfairly have a big spotlight on him(or her) next year, would be extremely tough for rookie coach. Just looking at AFL clubs and crows, Pyke came in and couldn't cope. Same as when Primus got full time gig. I agree with Isaac about pushing forward into the future but if we're going to have a lame duck coach to start let it be Gaze with a clear succession plan. Flynn as a rookie coach got put into firing line and let's be honest, next year we won't be far off Hawks especially if more dirty laundry comes out. So a first time coach shouldn't have to takeover such a mess.
Until then Neilson will be targeted then the old favorites, Bevo, Dennis and haven't heard a good Gordy rumours in a while. And if anyone mentions Joyce I'm going to lose my shit!

Just quickly thinking, to my knowledge we've had Weaver, Demopoulos, Dunlap, Don Monson and Murray Arnold as import coaches, maybe a couple I've missed. Not counting Gorgean, Brown, Turner etc as they were already here.
Australian basketball has definitely morphed from the American style with a European influence. I think Weaver has done well as the Kings are probably the closest to American, most of the team are from there or played in that system anyway. Would he have reached playoffs with Illawarra, maybe, but obviously talent way less.
Could a European coach work in Nbl, not sure. And seeing how some coaches act it would make Joey look like Lyndsey Gaze on sideline. And college coaches do tend to be rather over the top as they know they have the power over the players. Just look at Beilein and the Cavs, they weren't having any part of extra training and film sessions, Dunlap was great coach but had same problems in Adelaide and Charlotte relating to pros.
One questions that concerns me is where are the up and coming coaches in Australia. When an AFL job comes up immediately there's a long list to choose from, recently if you were involved in the Clarkson tree it was inevitable you'd be linked to every opening. But rarely there's no names that spring to mind, hence Neilson being prime candidate. Kelly served a good apprenticeship and done amazing things in cairns. But it seems not many players get on coaching staffs and stay. Junior state programs are normally the same old characters that are more political selections than anything they've done. Jantke talked his way onto holding a clipboard but would you say he is anywhere near an nbl coach, of course not. Just goes to where what club has talent coming through and rides that for a few years, but apparently he's this great junior development guru. Now he's poached another state kid to come sit on his bench. And we all know how Petty ranks.

Loading up on a premium ex-NBA coach wouldn't be worth it in the NBL. Gleeson got picked up when a club went bust, then sacked and picked up again. Kelly and Vickerman from assistant roles. Would Weaver have been overly expensive? You'd be far better off throwing surplus funds at a playing roster. For $1-2m you could almost certainly drag 2-4 of the best players in the league to your team. Kings weren't exactly hurt by adding Ware, Wildcats by adding Kay.

I don't know if I'd grab Bevo.

My guess will be a favourite local basketball personality will coach the team before being sack after 2 seasons of a 3 year contract. Adam Caporn will then be employed to help rebuild the roster on the basis of having strong contacts with talented juniors.

Caporn coaches the team for three season, the team bottoms out all three years and then Will Weaver takes over after winning a championship with the Kings this year (only for the owner to go broke and the team folds) after which he spends the following three seasons as coach of Illawarra before it too folds before joining Adelaide and taking it from bottom to a Grand Final series in his first year.

A baller I have had much respect for, over the years, in several roles has been Steve Carfino. Wonder what sort of Head Coach he would be! If not at Adelaide, maybe Tassie (I'd definitely be happy with Carfino in Bris).

Just read his Wikipedia profile and feel that his CV/experience is ideal. Reckon, like Will Weaver, Carfino would be the calm yet strong figure-head that the 36er's might need ATM. As for Tassie, could be where he should be. Played there, super star, NBL Hall of Fame and several other major awards. Extremely well respected throughout the NBL.

My money is on Gaze. Him doing an interview about this specific situation could only be because he's been engaged in some capacity.

My money is that if Gaze gets the job then JVG and the rest of the board should be sacked. JVG of all people know Gaze can't caoch.

Gaze could attract the right sort players, great PR man, bring him in with a gun assistant coach and tell him to put his ego out the way and co coach.

You've basically given reasons for Gaze being a general manager, not a head coach.

They need some good PR, whatever you think of his coaching he's a likeable bloke. Just have him as the face and search for an associate head coach to run things. Ight be only chance KB has to stay. Don't know current relationship with Giddey but could be a factor in signing. And I think if there's a good next star coming in, after Sydney the nbl might choose Adelaide to give him to. Get a couple of decent imports finally and hopefully they can forget about this off season.

Man I get tired of people that don't know how this works. Gaze would be the Head Coach and JVG selects his side. Worked well in Sydney didnt it? Gaze had his sock puppets in LC and Kendall and they were crap.

Is KB actually still around? I assumed they were just using a cardboard cutout.
I don't think this is the right time to gamble on an untested assistant. I think we need Bevo or somebody similar. I don't know who to blame for the bunch of clowns we've recruited recently, Joey and Owner both blaming each other, but its got to stop. Need a coach who can rebuild.

"Can't believe Gaze could be considered" Yep just shows you that the "fans" really know nothing about the game nor Gaze's coaching ability. His record at the Melb Tigers in the SEABL was crap and JVG hired him for the KIngs. Undoubtedly GOAT for Oz, but now it's JVG in Adelaide now and it's all Dejauvou

Teams can and are already re-signing their own players look at Brisbane with Magnay and NZ with Loe, Delany & Weeks.

Sixers are already behind the eight ball there and haven't even hired a new coach yet who would probably want some say on what players are brought back or not.

With Holloway out for year apparently with knee, is player payments covered by insurance? If so that could be reason why they could afford Lwal. Or is it just bad luck and Holloway doesn't get paid?

Insurance paying out Holloway wouldn't allow Southern to pick up a 3rd import, so that doesn't matter.

JVG should be already negotiating with DJ and Drmic's agents to re-sign.

You shouldn't need a coach for that.

That is unless JVG believes he can blow up this team and start anew.

At first I thought JVG's hiring was to help smooth over things with Joey but I didn't know as someone on here pointed out that his and Joey's relationship ended poorly at Brisbane (the club was struggling and management i.e. JVG asked all the players and coaches to take a 50% pay cut but JVG himself refused to so Joey sued) so likely JVG was hired to entice Joey to quit more than anything.

Zodiac....nothing surprises me anymore after this season.

If you had told me these shenanigans would take at a club at the beginning of the season, I would not have picked the Sixers being one of the possible ones.

But the depths we have sunken to is frightening, I thought we couldn't go lower than the Creek episode. Boy was I wrong.

But we have a nice new venue and increasing patronage to build on, I'm even open to starting a 'the Process' even if that means a couple more years of this provided I see some up and coming talent injected into the squad.

I must admit I have very little faith in the Sixers owner/administration it's been blunder after blunder. Seemingly tin-eared and unable to learn from their mistakes the hiring of JVG was yet another one added to the long list in just a few short years.

I have to give them credit for the move to the AEC I thought that had the potential to backfire by thumbing their noses at the owners of TSA but it appears to have been quite a successful move but outside of that it's been a shitshow under this regime.

Hopefully the stench of the Creek scenario has abated enough to allow us to recruit some real players this season and not have to sign guys no other team wants.

The history lesson was from me.

So this all happened in 2008 with the Bullets demise which shamefully ended JvG's NBL career. All of a sudden in 2016 reports state Jeff was head hunted (LOL, you've got to be kidding me) by AEG's Lister to run the Kings. It doesn't add up. What I think occurred is the Kings wanted to sign a brand name like Gaze as head coach and he told them it's a package deal with old-mate-from-the-Tigers JvG as his GM.

This identical scenario is probably now being played out at the Sixers? With the added bonus of installing JvG earlier during mid-season (weird timing, no?) to help in getting rid of Wright due to their prior history at Brisbane.

A former cheerleading coach has been arrested over historic child sex allegations.

The woman, 22, from Adelaide's western suburbs was arrested on Sunday according to a report from SA Police.

The offences go back as far as 2013, and allegedly occurred between then and 2017.

Was this at the 36’s?

Boomers assistant Adam Caporn believed to be leading contender for Adelaide 36ers coaching job, but club must wait on signing him

The Adelaide 36ers have all but settled on their new coach and were poised to offer him a deal when the coronavirus crisis sent the world into shutdown and the club into an indefinite holding pattern.

The Sixers might be in off season mode, but they are not immune to the economic crisis gripping sporting teams across the country.

Two roles have been dissolved in the past week - media manager Kate Taeuber, who was made redundant, and their community and game night operations manager, who resigned.

Neither role are expected to be replaced.

Talks with candidates have been put on hold while the 36ers await a decision from the NBL with regards to player free agency, fixturing and resources for next season after its off-season competition 'NBL1' was cancelled.

It’s understood that Boomers assistant and current AIS high performance basketball head Adam Caporn is the front runner for the Adelaide job where he would reunite with the Sixers’ only new signing Josh Giddey.

The Sixers had interviewed a candidate in the US but travel restrictions and the unknown of the coronavirus means that now appears highly unlikely.

Adelaide basketball operations manager Jeff Van Groningen said the club was awaiting information from the NBL before signing its new coach to replace Joey Wright.

"We were in the process of the final stage of our search (for a new coach)," Van Groningen said.

“We identified some great candidates and were getting to the point where we were preparing to offer a candidate the job, I’m not prepared to talk about who that was ... we believe the discussions need to occur about whether the interest we have is shared by the candidate and that’s where it stopped.

“It doesn’t need to go any further than that right now because it’s a pause while we look at more important international matters at hand.

“If travel restrictions are (still there) those are logistical nightmares for any league with an international component.

“I haven’t thought much about that, I’m more interested in the timing of free agency and the league and the off-season, they are much more pertinent than coaching.”

The NBL is still targeting an October start date for next season, but management is in constant discussions with clubs and the players’ association as the health crisis unfolds.

“We really need to have information about what the league is doing with the structure of the off-season,” Van Groningen said.

“This is normally the time we would find out things like the fixture, and now you’ve got this unprecedented world event that very understandably needs to be completely understood.

“Are things going to look different in terms of dates or economically? If those things (cutbacks) are happening in one league (AFL and NRL) you can make a decent assumption that will happen elsewhere.

“But it’s counter-productive to speculate, the owners are contributing and that’s the most important thing and the league is key to it all because they govern the sport.”

Van Groningen also confirmed that both Anthony Drmic and Harry Froling had been told to explore their free agency options, despite the club initially telling The Advertiser that Froling was a required player and were in advanced discussions with his management about a new deal.

Drmic was awarded Adelaide’s most improved player this season and Froling was NBL Rookie of the Year two years ago.

“We have elected to go ahead and let Harry exercise that ability to be a free agent, and we have communicated that to him,” Van Groningen said.

He said no decision had been made on players who were contracted for next season, but with a club option on their final year.

Makes sense right now to leave Adam where he is. He has a wage, has a location to live. No point trying to move everything.

Player discussions will all be online anyway for the next 2 months.
Players could be told who the coach would likely be, but the Sixers and Adam would both be best making no official engagement, therefore Adam is in the safest position both financially and health wise.

The roster no further progression list would have to be.
Dillon, White, and possibly Teys. His previous strength was knowing Joeys system. So if he can't pick up new coaches system instantly, then his place on the team is lacking due to other younger potentials taking his place.
