Basketball Hall of Famer Bill Walton has suggested former President Barack Obama be the next coach of UCLA basketball.

According to Fox News:

Basketball Hall of Famer Bill Walton suggested an interesting candidate when he was asked who should be the next coach of the UCLA men’s basketball program after the school fired Steve Alford.

Walton, who was doing color commentary during the Bruins’ matchup against Stanford on Thursday night, suggested former President Barack Obama should be the next UCLA coach.

“Well, he’s - I don’t think he’s going to coach so …” Walton’s broadcaster partner Dave Pasch said.

“Well, you keep saying that, but why? Why are you so negative,” Walton jokingly asked Pasch. “Why do you just turn down? His brother-in-law coached. I’m sticking with Barack Obama until he says no.”

  Obama is a noted basketball lover but this speculation from Bill Walton seems to be wishful thinking.
