    He must have been their fall back position if other options didn't pan out.

    I've read that he's highly regarded in the league. I believe that he was an assistant coach.

    Nurse was the one who deveoped the offensive system this year.
    The team forced Casey to listen to him and that's how they started moving the ball.

    Another team doesn't hire Messina. For someone who is so highly regarded with accolades and Pop's right hand man that's quite suspicious.

    Messina is overrated AF, he only coached best teams in Europe, his coaching is outdated given how average he did when he had his last coaching gigs there (Europe) and there's no wonder he aint getting Head coach position anywhere.

    Didn't he used to be an assistant here with McHale and was the Vipers coach?

    Coaching Europeans boys is different from coaching American men.

    Have no idea how he will fare but it’s always refreshing for new coaching blood instead of retreads.

    I know very well. hehehe since I'm a PAO fan I have witnessed his failures first hand.
    However some extremely flawed coaches like Clifford, Borego have been getting jobs and he hasn't.

    If it was beween hiring Borego and Messina for a bad team I would rather personally try Messina to see how he does.
    I don't believe for a second that he's worse than all the coaches of the league.

    If by "American men" you mean "guys whose priority list doesn't have the word TEAM in top 3 spots", then yeah I agree with you. It's very different.
