QThe Marlins have de­cided to go with Jamie O’Lough­lin for the 2018 QBL sea­son. You were keen to coach the Marlins – is that a dream you still have?

AWhile I would have thor­oughly en­joyed coach­ing the Marlins, it is not re­ally what I would con­sider a “dream”. A “goal” for sure, but a dream makes it sound like it’s a bit of a stretch to at­tain when, re­al­is­ti­cally, as some­body who has al­ready won seven QBL cham­pi­onships and earned Coach of the Year hon­ours in the process, I can con­fi­dently say that I pos­sess the right tools to men­tor the Marlins to QBL suc­cess. Be­ing a lo­cal per­son who has given over 20 years of ser­vice to Cairns Bas­ket­ball, it would have been nice to have been re­warded with the op­por­tu­nity. At the end of the day, I won’t lose sleep over their de­ci­sion and will con­tinue to work hard to achieve my other goals, one of which is to lead the Taipans, or another club in the NBL, one day.
