We've seen this all before, the interim comes in and the team finishes strong for him. Hasn't really work well, before, but I suppose it could be different, this time. On the other hand, how are you going to sell a shiny, new CBJ, sans Nash, next year without a shiny new face behind the bench? Aside from my opinion about his coaching qualifications, retaining Todd Richards is going to do nothing to drum up interest in potential ticket buyers. A known face, ala Hitch, might do it, or a top young guy (I forget the name of the Leafs top coaching prospect, but plug it in here) with some league-wide juice could help. But more of what's been here contributing to the worst team in the league for the entire season? Ummm, not so much.
