GM: Cheeks will coach Sixers next season

Villanova fans can breathe a sigh of relief tonight, as Philadelphia 76ers president Billy King gave his current coach Maurice Cheeks a vote of confidence for next season.

This should put to bed the persistent rumor that Villanova coach Jay Wright would be lured to the NBA next year to revive the struggling Philadelphia franchise.

The rumor had been exacerbated by a string of appearances at Villanova games by Larry Brown, a 76ers executive. Apparently the Villanova, Pa-resident Brown really was just there to watch basketball, and not woo the up-and-coming Wright.

Larry Brown wasn't just showing up at games, I saw him at practices and some people I know saw him hanging around the pavilion.

Yeah, I know that. Larry Brown is definitely close to the program. I'm just happy that we now have confirmation Jay is not leaving this year.
