Chris Bosh has in mind his next move now that his basketball career is behind him now.
The retired Miami Heat great, who will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame this weekend, hinted to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel on Wednesday that he is interested in coaching in the future. Bosh emphasized though that he is currently focused on being a father.
“I don’t want to put any closure on it,” he said. “Some sort of front-office or coaching situation, I don’t want to throw dirt on it and say, ‘That’s it.’ All I’ll say right now, I’m concentrating on being a father and raising these kids.
“One day if I have more free time on my hands, I would definitely consider some of those things, with the right situation,” Bosh added.
Bosh is only 37 years old and was force to retire earlier than expected due to blood clothing issues. Trancistioning into coaching wouldn’t be hard for Bosh to do considering so many of his peers have done so already.
Former Heat players Malik Allen and Caron Butler are currently assistants on Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra’s staff. The same was also true of ex-Heat big man Juwan Howard, who is now the head coach at the University of Michigan.
