    Theus to become Kings coach

    The Kings announced late Tuesday afternoon they have reached an agreement in principle with New Mexico State coach Reggie Theus to become their new coach.

    Theus, who was one of three finalists for the position left vacant by Eric Musselman's firing, was given the job after Kings general manager Geoff Petrie and representatives of Larry Brown failed to progress. The other finalists were current Kings assistant Scott Brooks and Lakers assistant Brian Shaw.

    The first-time NBA head coach is believed to be getting a three-year, $6 million deal.

    Theus brings an element the other two finalist could not offer. Not only does he have Sacramento roots - having come west with the Kansas City Kings to play in Sacramento from 1985 to 1988 - he has a flair and excitement that some think could generate interest at a crucial time for the organization. Not only do the Kings need public support should a new arena finally be built, sellouts might not be a certainty next season.

    On the sideline, Theus is an intriguing mix, having transitioned well into the college game with two historically successful seasons at New Mexico State.

    It's a mystery whether the persona that generated the "Reggie Nation" craze in Las Cruces, N.M., will translate to non-college aged fans. Clearly, however, he has personality to spare. And while he never has served on an NBA bench, his nine years as an NBA analyst (Fox, ESPN, TNT) can't be overlooked as an unorthodox means to staying in touch with the pro game.
I like this choice even more than van Gundy (I know, I'm totally deluded) but also: ha ha ha ha ha. Suck it, Larry Brown. Suck it hard.

Brian Shaw? Really? Geez, glad they made the choice to go with Theus over HIM. ;-)

Is he really any better than Musselmen(Spelling?)? The Maloof's did not want to pay Larry Brown I guess.

Reggie Theus looks AWESOME in a suit, too. The man should be a model. I love Reggie. He is one handsome man. Is Kim okay with this selection, Chris?

CRZ had to edit my profile and close my table for me. I am a bad man.
