If any of you follow former Bad Boy Bill Laimbeer, you know of his aspirations of becoming an NBA head coach. Well he’s going to be resigning resigned today as the Head coach of the Detroit’s WNBA Shock. My guess, he’s got a head coaching job lined up.
“The Free Press has learned that former Pistons’ star Bill Laimbeer is expected to resign as the head coach of the WNBA defending champion Shock this afternoon following an immensely successful 6 1/2-year run.
It is believed that Laimbeer’s long-term aspiration is to become an NBA head coach.” Via The Detroit Free Press

I guess we will find out soon.
UPDATE: We all saw this coming but just in case you don’t know, former Bad Boy and assistant coach Rick Mahorn will step in for Laimbeer as The Shock’s coach.
The Pistons do a fantastic job on their 24 Seconds video segments, but when I caught this one with Bill Laimbeer I couldn’t help but get a huge kick out of it. I promise you that I knew exactly what he was going to say when asked who his favorite basketball player was.
It’s just Bill and why we love him in Detroit and why he’s hated everywhere else.
