Houston Rockets Interviewing Jeff Van Gundy to be Their Next Head Coach

The Houston Rockets continue the recruitment process for their vacant head coaching position and the flavor of the week is Jeff Van Gundy.

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the interview is scheduled for Wednesday. 

The Rockets have been busy and are looking for their next bench boss to have the ability to connect with superstars James Harden and Russell Westbrook. The two players have immense talents and huge personalities so the Rockets are being extremely diligent with their search. 

Van Gundy, who has been busy with his media career, coached the Rockets back from 2003-07 where he had regular season success which didn't result in playoff wins. The team couldn't get past the first round in three of his four seasons.

Perhaps, the second times a charm? Regardless, JVG is ready to get to work.
