    Lets see, Saban, gone, Riley, gone, Marlins guy just started in Oct., so is it the Panthers coach?
    Fun day to be in the sports dept. at the Herald, Sun-Sentinel or PB Post, huh?

    Jacques Martin of the Panthers.

    Riles is not gone...taking leave of absence for knee and hip surgery, says he'll be back.

    Besides, there has been no mention of Riley here, has there, until this thread? I had to go look it up to see what you were talking about.

    It's on the all-purpose NBA thread.

    BTW, I hate all-purpose threads.

    All-purpose threads are OK for day-to-day discussion.
    News like Riles taking leave of absence needs its own thread.

    Maybe we need an all-purpose thread to discuss all-purpose threads.

    Wouldn't that be redundant... or at least a d_b?

    Actually wouldn't Martin have Riley beat anyway since Riles came back midway through last season?

    Ron Rothstein coaches the Heat for the first time in more than 15 years.

    His first game in his last tenure with them: At home against the Clippers. Same as tonight.

    Ahh yes the ol "got a bad hip" excuse. right out of Coach K's book on how to disassociate yourself from a season gone horribly wrong.

    Funny how these things pop up when teams suck...and funny how Riles felt just fine last year, fine enough to hip check ol' Ron Jeremy right out of a job just in time to win another ring.

    Next up: Riles makes sure Rothstein's record doesn't go on his. Except if the Heat do well, of course.

    I think this is legit.

    But his quickly selecting this time, when there will be no focus on the move, is sharp.

    But Riley won't be able to "back" those losses out of his coaching record the way Krzyzewski did.
