    Dan Majerle cheesed he didnt get Suns coaching gig

    Thunder Dan

    “It’s been a hard pill to swallow,” Majerle said. “The first thing that disappoints me is usually in a situation like this, the lead assistant gets the job and that is Elston (Turner) with his 14 years of experience. Once he didn’t get it, I thought I deserved it. The thing I keep hearing management say on the radio is that hiring me would’ve been the popular and easy thing to do. I earned it. I deserved a shot if it’s not going to be Elston. I coached 5 ˝ years. I coached the summer leagues. I didn’t need a favor. Picking Elston would’ve been the easy thing to do….

    “They talk about integrity,” Majerle said. “To skip over two qualified people didn’t make sense. They chose Lindsey, a guy not even on the coaching staff and who they told us was only there to help us. I think they had their minds made up already before the interviews. I was going to lay low and not comment but I heard people from the organization get on the radio and say I would’ve been the popular and easy thing to do and that’s a slap in the face.”

    This is perfect for an MBA class. Hiring from outside is very tricky and can often lead to current employees feeling like they'll never get promoted. In this tricky business, however, he should just be lucky to be on any coaching staff. If he's so great, another team will recognize it and give him a shot. If his bosses do not think he would have fit there, it's not a slap in the face at all.

    Get better at coaching or get a thicker skin.

    Elston Turner left too and wasn't happy. They'll both find coaching gigs elsewhere for sure.

    Elston Turner should be even more angry than Marjerle.

    When did cheese become a verb? Is this like 'beasting'?

    They shouldn't bring in a new coach midseason, an assistant the team already knows and trusts is a better idea. The incoming coach isn't going to be able to install plays or philosophies on the fly with any success.

    Was it that or was it discrimination?

    You're missing the point. Majerle and Turner got passed over for one of the Suns GM's (Lance Blanks) buddies in Lindsey Hunter. Hunter has only been retired for 2.5 seasons and wasn't even on the Suns coaching staff.

    Hunter wasn't chosen because he was a better candidate; he was chosen because he's Blanks' friend.
