SEC basketball: Which coaches were the best players?


Those who can, do. Those who can’t, get coaching jobs and earn their money telling others. Sure, that’s a slight rewrite of the old aphorism about experience and teaching, but in some cases, it holds true. The SEC coaching ranks hold 1 legitimate basketball legend, and … well, some less imposing resumes. A few coaches opted to star at lower levels of competition, while a few were role players at D-I schools. A couple of coaches didn’t even suit up in college basketball.
