LaSalle has also interviewed ESPN’s Tim Legler, a LaSalle grad, and Villanova assistant Ashley Howard.
For James it’s an opportunity obviously but Philly is one of those places where it helps to know people. If he got the job he’d be smart to hire some local assistants and then immediately start to work the high school scene.
Like New York, Baltimore and D.C., and really every major Northern city, there are public and parochial schools not to mention the AAU people.
James is going to do well wherever he might go but some places have bigger curves than others (that goes for football schools too).
