NYTimes: Josh Pastner, 32-year-old head coach at Memphis



Link.

“I’ve known him since he was in high school, and he has a brilliant mind to be a head coach,” said Bob Gibbons, a recruiting analyst based in North Carolina. “That personality you get from him is not a snow job; he really is genuine, and remarkable. When he was at Arizona, Lute Olson told me Josh had the best basketball mind of any kid he has been around.”
If I remember correctly, I was in a handful of pickup games in Bear Down Gym on the University of Arizona campus with one Mr. Pastner. He was competitive but not spectacularly skilled. He earned the regulars' respect because, unlike Miles Simon, he would play in the game if he was the 10th guy in the gym. He was constantly drilling younger players, such as having them receive a pass and curl around a garbage can and take a jumper. He definitely helped Marcus Williams get into the NBA.

It's interesting who one can meet and see come into the limelight.
