Worthless Coaches

After following all the comments about the 2013-2014 Suns one cannot help but be struck with what many Suns detractors and even fans and writers seem to believe. No one gives the coach much of a second look when evaluating the Suns upcoming season. The coach is the brains of the engine. That is why the Clippers wanted Doc Rivers as their coach. Many think it was their best move of the off season. So why is the value of Hornacek not even given a second glance. I know he has no head coaching experience and I know his current roster leaves a lot to be desired but it is the coach's job to improve his players both in their skills and attitude while also installing an offense, defense and the motivation that best suits his players.

Hornacek has said that he thought he'd get a college coaching job before a professional one. He wanted to teach players and with the very young roster he has in Phoenix he will have players to teach. Players of a much higher skill level and athletic ability than any college team. Can he mold them into a good team? There is no answer to this at this point and this should be one the things Suns followers should look for this year.

So my question to all you detractors is this, how much effect does a coach and their staff have on the outcome of a season?

Can a good coach make a poor team good and a good team great or are coaches just worthless bodies sitting on the NBA beaches around the league?
