Currently 76ers assistant coach Michael Curry is waiting patiently as a potential candidate for the position vacated by Doug Collins in April. Philly.com points out that Curry could be in a good spot given that most coaching vacancies will be filled before the draft and many candidates will already be off the table for the Sixers.
Probably the biggest thing working in Curry's favor is that he is already familiar with the pieces the Sixers have in place. He works closely with All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday who, along with Evan Turner, has publicly supported Curry's candidacy for a head coaching position somewhere, particularly in Philadelphia.
Curry, 44, served as the head coach of the Detroit Pistons during the 2008-2009 season and lead the team to a 39-43 record before being fired after just one season. He has been an assistant coach with the Sixers for three seasons.
