According to Andy Katz's blog three point shot, Dan Leibowitz was hired by Mike Dunlap to be an assistant coach of player development for the Charlotte Bobcats. Looks like leaving Hartford wasn't such a bad decision. On the other hand, Charlotte had the dubious distinction of having the worst record in the NBA last season. If Dunlap doesn't work out it could be a short lived career in the NBA for Leibowitz.

Even if it is a disaster, he's better off for having taken the spot. A colleague of mine left our company to take the position of CEO at a company that was in serious trouble. I asked him why he would take the risk and his response was that the job didn't matter, he was now "in the club". Sure enough, that company failed (not his fault) within a year of his arrival -- but six months later he was hired as CEO of a much stronger startup. Having been a CEO already was certainly a helpful thing to have.

In Leibowitz' case, no matter what happens in Charlotte he will now meet the criteria of "has NBA experience" for any position that comes along down the road.

Good luck to him.

Dunlap will have at least 2 years to make some kind of a positive impact on that franchise...in that time Leibowitz will get his name out there, further gain experience etc. It's not a bad move...

Great gig for him. Can always go back to a similar role like UPenn if wants to.
