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.
Congrats to Bill Laimbeer and the Shock for dominating the WNBA finals in a sweep over San Antonio. We actually have a legitimate Dynasty right now in Detroit. Let’s hope The Pistons can change the sign again after the 2008-2009 season. The did get off to a good start with an 95-91 OT win over The Heat in their first pre-season game.
I have now witnessed The Shock and The Pistons win it all in person. A friend of mine thought it would be fun to head down to EMU for the game and let me tell you it was a special experience. Laimbeer and Mahorn were ecstatic, the Bad Boys brought another championship to Detroit. I pulled the video for all to enjoy. Go Shock!
Apparently my YouTube video isn’t working, I’ll have to try again later today for you.
