Name some successful basketball coaches that never played.

LSU's new hire never played apparently. Was just wondering who some other good coaches that never played basketball.

How about other sports?

If you're going beyond HC I'd argue Darren Erman

Spoelstra played college. He was on the court when Hank Gathers died.

Both played, though Stan played for his father at some d3 school

But he did have a solid porn career

Played the level they coach or played ever? Surely Wade at least played high school or junior high, no?

He was a manager for his high school

Wade, who graduated from FRA in 2001 after serving as a manager on the basketball team, was an assistant for four seasons at VCU before taking over at Chattanooga in 2013.
