Ben Wallace doesn’t want to coach in NBA

Ben Wallace, via Eric Lacy of The Detroit News:

"Yeah, if I decided to coach it will be for ages 6 to 10," he said, smiling.

Wallace has made it clear he doesn’t plan to pursue coaching after his imminent retirement. His passion lies with law school and becoming an attorney.

I’m not convinced Wallace would make a good coach, anyway. He certainly knows the game well enough, but his reputation has always been that younger players must seek his advice and demonstrate they’ll work hard before he takes them under his wing. That works well as a veteran, but as a coach, he couldn’t be as choosy about his mentees. It’s not automatic he could make that shift successfully.
