07:10 AM ET 08.06 | Philadelphia, seemingly in no rush from the start of its search, may be getting closer to landing Doug Collins' replacement. Several head-coaching candidates will meet with [76ers] ownership in New York this week in a second round of interviews, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Four assistant coaches -- Atlanta's Kenny Atkinson, San Antonio's Brett Brown, Chicago's Adrian Griffin and Boston's Jay Larranaga -- are scheduled to meet with, Sixers managing partners Josh Harris and David Blitzer, among other team officials, sources told Yahoo! Sports. Another assistant coach, Portland's David Vanterpool, is still a possible candidate to join the group in New York, sources said. Michael Curry, a holdover on the staff of [Collins], is considered a candidate for the job too.

I wonder if the position is posted on Monster.com. Maybe I will fill out for it cause I am tired of this darn desk job.

Since it's the 1st week of August, it's nice to know the thought has crossed their minds.

Tank mode initiated. Just hire a young go getter or a college coach.
