...the people of the Villanova community, the energy of the Nova Nation, and the family that is Villanova Basketball, it becomes such a big part of who you are... -Billy Lange, 2011

Villanova Associate Head Coach Billy Lange is reportedly in talks with the Houston Rockets to coach their D-League squad, Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

Lange returned to the Main Line in 2011, after being the Head Coach at Navy for seven seasons.

Jon Rothstein is also noting that Lange is being pursued by the Philadelphia 76ers for a role on the bench with Brett Brown.

He served as an assistant under Wright for three years, from 2001 to 2003 before leaving to take the job at Annapolis.

What do you think? Excited to see Jay send another coach to bigger things? Think this will impact recruiting?
