Collins Downplays Talk Of Coaching Team USA
Doug Collins is generating plenty of talk about possibly becoming the next U.S Olympic basketball coach, but the Sixers coach said Sunday that's all there is to it right now.
"It's a tremendous honor that somebody would even throw my name out there," Collins said. "It's four years down the road and I understand in this business you hope you are an active coach at the time.”
Collins hopes to stay with the Sixers long-term.
"I am hoping that I am still active and I would like to coach four or five years in Philadelphia,” Collins continued. "I feel good about our team and I love my staff, what we are doing and where we are headed. The ownership, Josh [Harris], has been so good to me, so I feel really good about that."
