Former Missouri Tigers Coach Quin Snyder Resurfaces In The NBA

I bet it's been a while since you've heard this name: Quin Snyder.

↵

The former Missouri Tigers coach spent the last four years in the NBA's D-League coaching the Austin Toros, where he won more games and sent more players to the NBA than any other D-League coach.

↵

Now, he's got a job with Doug Collins' staff on the 76ers.

↵

Steve Kelley of the Seattle Times caught up with Snyder to see what he's been up to.

↵

He talked about his time at Missouri -- and how he hated the public spotlight -- as well as his time away from basketball and his ultimate decision to return to the game.

↵

It's a very interesting read 12 years after he became the "next big thing" at Mizzou.
