He would have to really want to do coaching to take less than a major job.  With networks handing out big contract to former ESPN personalities, he is probably doing pretty well.  That said, would be shocked if a major job would take that risk.

Exactly

I think Doug said on Petro last year that he'd love to get into coaching, but it had to be the right job in terms of fit and salary.  He said that he couldn't just take any job because his family is accustomed to living a certain lifestyle based on his ESPN salary, and he's not willing to move down from that.

So, after the CBS move, I think he priced himself out of a ton of jobs if that's really a criteria for him.

And I agree with ChiCat that I don't think many, if any, high majors would take a risk on him for the money he'd ask for.

haha, what alternative perspective were you going to provide Doug?

His joke was a dig at affirmative action.

He's supposed to have an 'alternative perspective' by virtue of being an underrepresented race. Somehow.

Thats the joke.

I don't know who Maria Taylor is and also the quoted tweet was deleted. What is the context here?

they released the individual journalists' all-nba votes, and everyone voted AD first or second team except Taylor didn't include him on any team (1/2/3)...DG then says she shouldn't get a vote b/c she is just a studio host and not an analyst (=she doesn't necessarily know what she is talking about)

I don’t disagree with Doug here. I don’t think he’s being a bad person. Maybe tone deaf for some. It was a bad mistake.

I can’t even remember why I liked him in the first place.  Was he kind to us on TV when Frank was the coach maybe?

He carried out gE's OOD directions.  But as to hiring him, it was that he was popular in college basketball and on normal ESPN and could get us enough good recruits to keep Frank's work rolling for a few more years at least and when we'd be in a better spot to hire after he'd have moved on from us.

Instead, we got oscar, and gottlieb fell into a life of crime and grift.

I'm not a big Le Batard fan but he understands that the personalities need ESPN more than the other way around.  Once a lot of these guys leave for a payday, they miss the spotlight and become shitty hot-take guys (as 8man pointed out).
