Richardson to be Head Coach of Potential Tulsa Team

From the Tulsa World:

Investors seeking to bring a WNBA franchise to Tulsa have scheduled a press conference for 5 p.m. Tuesday to announce Nolan Richardson as the team’s head coach, pending their ability to secure a franchise, the Tulsa World learned Monday.

My suspicion: Cameron and Box have offered Richardson purchase rights for a part of the team if he becomes head coach...and I suspect Richardson has purchased a share.

My odds on a Tulsa WNBA franchise for 2010 - 75 percent.

Idiotic hire and proof these guys are going to bomb. Nolan is way over the hill and a shaky character to boot. This makes hiring Dave Cowens look like a smart move in Chicago, which is not easy to do.

Just more proof this team will be a big embarassment if they actually end up moving forward. They are totally local focused and boosterish with their movement, and the civic pride crap does not last beyond the first year.

Bet they try to load up with OU and other local players too....
