The Grant Napear Show – January 6, 2012
The day after the Kings underwent a head coaching change, Friday’s show focused mainly on the road ahead for Sacramento under new coach Keith Smart before giving way to coverage of the Cotton Bowl after hour two.
Smart, in his first interview as coach of the Kings, discussed his experience that put him in position to take over for Paul Westphal and what he learned in his interim stint last year with the Warriors. Smart laid out his vision for how he expects to build the team and his philosophy on and off the court – including how he plans on handing out playing time. He talked about the coaches that have influenced his approach as well as how the suddenness of his promotion has affected the installation of his system.
Chris Landry of Fox Sports Radio also checked in for his weekly preview of the weekend’s football action, with the NFL Playoffs kicking off this weekend and the Cotton Bowl taking place Friday night. Chris also looked ahead to the BCS Championship Game between Alabama and LSU.
