Jason Kidd jumped from playing to coaching in less than two weeks.
The Brooklyn Nets named Kidd their coach Wednesday in a rare and speedy transition from uniform to suit.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to be named head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, and it’s a role I have been studying for over the course of my playing days,” Kidd said in a news release. “Championship teams are built on being prepared, playing unselfishly and being held accountable, and that’s how I expect to coach this basketball team. I am truly excited about this next phase of my basketball career.”
Cosign Magazine has been a Jason Kidd fan from day one and would like to congratulate Jason Kidd on his smooth transition from player to coach. The news just gets better and better as I (KG) am a Knicks fan so having Kidd witht the Knicks was great and now he’s a coach in my hometown, Brooklyn. There’s only one thing left to say, “Brooklyn We Go Hard!”
