Jeff Van Gundy Backs Ewing as Head Coach

Earlier this summer, Patrick Ewing Jr. took to Twitter to express frustration that his Hall of Fame father was still an assistant coach after 10 seasons. It all happened when Jason Kidd became the Brooklyn Nets’ head coach with no prior NBA coaching experience.
Well, Ewing Jr. isn’t the only one who’s confused about Patrick Ewing’s situation. On Thursday, former Knicks coach and ESPN NBA analyst Jeff Van Gundy went on a serious monologue on ESPN New York 98.7 FM radio, saying, “I just don’t understand the reluctance by some general managers to view him as a viable candidate.”
“I’d like for someone to take my word for it. Ewing would be an outstanding head coach, but no one has bitten yet,” he said. ”
