I already mentioned Lindsay Gottlieb and Andy Enfield share the same agent (Bret Just).
But a part of me wonders if Gottlieb had been an assistant coach with the Orlando Magic instead of the Cleveland Cavaliers, would she have gotten the job?
The decision-makers in the athletic dept. are obsessed with Cincinnati/Ohio, so Gottlieb might have been known simply because she was coaching 250 miles away.
It reminded me when I saw former USC defensive lineman Frostee Rucker sitting courtside at a USC-UCLA game in 2019. I was happy to see Rucker at a game. But was it because he played at USC or played for the Cincinnati Bengals?
It should have been the former but I suspect it was the latter.
- USC 12th? That probably says a lot about the past 10 years.
