I can see Manu doing something with his national team, but not with an NBA team, at least in the head coach capacity. I think when Pop retires, they need to just start clean with an outside candidate. I can't remember anytime where a legendary head coach has retired and an assistant has had a successful run, without riding the team that the former legendary coach built, i.e. Seifert after Bill Walsh, Switzer after Jimmy Johnson, etc.
