Steve Nash, rumored for NBA coaching vacancy, helps NFL player rehab

BY foxsports • February 1, 2016

Former NBA star Steve Nash is rumored as a potential candidate to take over as the Phoenix Suns head coach. Nash may not be interested, instead spending his time helping an NFL player rehab.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Suns have "strong interest" in pursuing Nash as their new head coach after recently firing Jeff Hornacek. Stein reports Nash may not be "ready" to take over a full-time position. Nash is currently on Golden State's staff as a Player Development Consultant. He's also the general manager of Canada's Men's Basketball senior national team.

As of Monday morning, Nash has not publicly addressed the rumors to return to Phoenix's bench. However, he's not hard to find. Amidst all of Nash's coaching rumors, Texans' running back Arian Foster (who tore his Achilles in October 2015 and missed the remainder of the season) posted a photo of himself rehabbing with Nash. 

Foster called Nash the "goat" (greatest of all time) in the photo's caption.
