Former Spurs’ coach Hill offered coaching job in Japan

Former San Antonio Spurs’ coach, Bob Hill, has been offered the head coaching job in Japan for the Tokyo Apache according to the Japan Times.

The Apache, coming off a 22-30 season under now-fired bench boss Motofumi Aoki, have offered the job to veteran mentor Bob Hill, hoop insiders have told The Japan Times.

Hill, who turns 62 in November, has previously coached the New York Knicks (1986-87), Indiana Pacers (1990-93), San Antonio Spurs (1994-96) and Seattle SuperSonics (2006-07).

Spurs fans definitely remember his coaching days with the team. Great regular-season records. Poor playoff performances. How can Spurs fans forget the 1995 Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets and especially Hakeem Olajuwon. 

Then a man by the name of Gregg Popovich came to the Spurs in 1996 and the rest was history . . . for Hill.
