Don’t expect to see Tom Izzo in the NBA or in politics when he’s done coaching


While much of the sports world was focused on “The Decision” during the summer of 2010, there was also the question of whether or not Michigan State head coach Tim Izzo would take a job in the NBA.

How close Izzo was to becoming the Cleveland Cavaliers’ head coach is something that only those within the process will know, but at this point it’s highly unlikely he tries his hand at coaching in the NBA.

Izzo was a guest on the WOOD-TV (Grand Rapids, MI) show “Eight West” on Wednesday, where topics such as the NBA and politics came up.

While neither of those jobs may be for him, it seems like he wouldn’t mind working in the television industry once his coaching career ends.
