The school’s athletic department decided to hire someone who experienced success as a player and coach in the NBA – Avery Johnson. Image source: sacurrent.com   Johnson, nicknamed the “Little General” because of his small stature and as a nod to his close friendship with NBA legend and teammate “The Admiral” David Robinson, was never expected to make it big in the professional league. After graduating college in 1988, he was not drafted in the NBA and had to try out as a free agent.  Search this site

Playing under Coach Gregg Popovich, who many consider as the best basketball coach today, and with Robinson, he thrived as the Spurs’ starting point guard. He was an integral part of the 1998-99 Spurs team, which also had Tim Duncan, that won the NBA championship.  Johnson was praised for his e ectiveness in being the coach’s extension on the basketball court.  Later in his career, he would also become a coach himself. His coaching career began in 2004 when the Dallas Mavericks signed him as assistant to another renowned coach, Don Nelson, with the intent to groom him as successor. Within ve months of his hiring, Nelson resigned and passed him the torch.  Johnson found success as head coach, winning the Coach of the Year Award in 2006 and leading the team to its rst-ever NBA Finals appearance in the same year.  The Crimson Tide is hoping that Johnson can bring the winning pedigree along with him to Alabama.  Image source: espn.com Want to read more about the Alabama sports teams?
