While Spurs assistant, James Borrego, continues to interview for head coaching positions, is it possible he would make a lateral move to share the sideline with Fizdale if he doesn’t get a #1 position?
Fizdale ended up beating out Borrego for the Memphis job. The two are connected from when Fizdale coached Borrego at the University of San Diego.
Here is how Fizdale described their relationship after he was hired by the Grizzlies:
But the first call I made after I got the job was to him. No matter what in my lifetime, I’m going to, in every way I can, I’m going to look out for him and his family, because that’s what they are to me.
He’s like a little brother to me. I coached him in college.
