An old friend from Washington, DC sent along the following reference and recognition of NC State Basketball Coach, Sidney Lowe. Very cool.
Wizards Note: Wizards assistant coach Phil Hubbard watched the job Sidney Lowe did with the North Carolina State Wolfpack this season — Lowe nearly led his alma mater to an upset of rival North Carolina in the ACC tournament championship game — and figured he’d love an opportunity to do the same thing at his alma mater, Michigan.
Michigan fired Tommy Amaker and is in the process of looking for a replacement. Hubbard, who led the Wolverines to the 1976 NCAA championship game, is one of four Michigan players to have his number retired.
Hubbard has coached exclusively in the NBA as an assistant but believes that like Lowe, who had no previous college coaching experience before taking the N.C. State job, he could successfully guide a college program.
“Right now, my focus is here with the Wizards, but Michigan is the one job I would dream of having,” Hubbard said. “The way I look at it is, if Sidney Lowe can do it, why can’t I?”
