    ^ I really hope we don't start with this nepotism **** again and that this is actually a quality hire or giving him a chance in an unimportant position to see what he has.

    e: Looks like I was quick on the trigger. Just seems to be an internship.

    Yeah, because hiring unqualified people just because they're local is so much better than nepotism. And that's not a slight at Zach Schreiber, it's a slight at people who view local ties as a basketball qualification.

    It's an internship. I don't give a crap about who gets an internship. These guys are the equivalent of "gophers". As long as they are not incompetent at whatever they are interning.

    I think this is nice. This is how coaches become what they are and start at.
