The Metro is reporting that Les Berry will be back as the head coach of the Rainmen next year. Great move. I’m happy. If he has the freedom to build this team from the ground up on his own, go through a proper training camp, play some exhibition games and make all the personnel decisions then I see no reason why the Rainmen can’t be a contender next year. He did great coming into an absolutely terrible situation this year and if he is allowed to do his job unhindered then I think we’re in for a great season.
On the PR front, it is great to have the coach return and even better that it’s a local guy who people are already familiar with.
I can’t find many details, but I don’t imagine there will be many more released. I sort of feel like this was a bad time to announce it – the NBA finals are happening, we have a new government and tomorow’s sports coverage dominated by the Stanley Cup finals which are happening tonight.
