    Follows the old mold of classic head coaches that look like they have never played a game in their lives but know all there is to know about the sport.

    Did Frank at least play in High School? - Anyone know?

    This hiring process has taken forever and then some. It seems like they announced him as coach a good week ago...

    They were just sandbagging. They're really going to announce that they hired Maurice Cheeks.

    The league, in the midst of the lockout, sure may be takin' a lickin', but it's good to see the Pistons organization still tickin'.

    Thanks. They were also talking about that in the press conf. Guess he must really know his coaching.

    This could be a nice hire. I am looking forward to some half way decent rotations and strategy, when was the last time we had that.

    Frank phoned an interview with Drew & Mike this morning under the restriction he couldn't talk about players because of negotiations.

    Said he wasn't surprised by how long it took the Pistons to make a coaching decision and emphasized that Gores and his staff perform due diligence on everything.

    He sounds to be a motivated and likeable guy but we'll have to see how the players accept him

    No doubt about it...a beautiful writeup.

    This time around, it will not be the coach.

    Not trying to make excuses for Frank, but those years that they scraped the bottom, the NJ teams were built for failure. Their big 3 was Kidd, Carter and Jefferson.
