Lots of people thought two-time NCAA championship coach Jay Wright would be a perfect fit for the Sixers.
Turns out it was a fever dream.
Here is what he just tweeted:
“The 76ers have a great leader in [general manager] Elton Brand, outstanding young talent and an incredible opportunity for any coach to compete for a championship,” he said.
“As a lifetime 76ers fan, I have confidence they will bring in the right coach to build on what [former Sixers coach] Brett Brown has developed.
“I am not a candidate for the job. I am very happy and honored to coach at Villanova.”
