UPDATE | With Rob Beveridge on the market, will he coach the Kings?
It is the NBL’s turn for a ride on the coaching merry-go-round after it whirled into action when Andrew Gaze announced he would not coach the Kings beyond this season, opting to return home to Melbourne to be around his family.
Confirming what many suspected, Illawarra Hawks coach Rob Beveridge’s was next to jump on the carousel after the Hawks announced the two parties were parting ways. Beveridge had been head coach of the Hawks for four years.
Speculation is rife that Beveridge is bound for the Harbour City and the plum Sydney Kings head coaching gig.
Speaking before the news of the split between Beveridge and the Hawks, Sydney Kings CEO Paul Kind is refusing to rule out targeting Illawarra Hawks coach Bevo as Andrew Gaze’s replacement.
Kind told Macquarie Sports Radio Breakfast Beveridge would be “a consideration” as they look to secure Gaze’s successor.
“We want to make sure we open this search for a coach as broadly as possible,” he said.
“Rob would certainly be welcome if he wasn’t at Illawarra to particulate (in the process).
“We’d certainly like him to apply if he isn’t at Illawarra.”
