Report: Steve Nash not interested in Suns job despite ‘strong interest’ from team
The Phoenix Suns reportedly want to bring in Steve Nash as head coach, but the feeling is not mutual.
The Suns have “strong interest” in Nash for their vacant coaching position, sources told ESPN’s Marc Stein, but Nash isn’t interested in a coaching job at this time.
Despite being on owner Robert Sarver’s shortlist to replace Jeff Hornacek, Nash is reportedly focused on his three young children and other off-court interests, preferring to keep his basketball roles part-time for the time being.
Nash was, of course, a longtime point guard for the Suns, leading the team in their mid-2000s heyday. He still maintains a good relationship with Sarver, and the two even have a stake in a Spanish soccer team together. However, he reportedly had to he lobbied hard just to accept the part-time consulting position he currently holds with the Golden State Warriors, making any expanded role for any team look extremely unlikely, at least right now.
