Metta World Peace Wants St. John's Coaching Job

Metta World Peace, the NBA player formerly known as Ron Artest, has shown a strong interest in coaching at his alma mater.
St. John’s currently has an open position after parting ways with Steve Lavin. Metta World Peace said during an appearance on ESPN Radio Sunday night that he has contacted the school to let them know that his interest in the job is genuine.
World Peace played at St. John’s during his college career and is willing to take a hiatus from his professional basketball career to coach the Red Storm. It should be noted that the school is closing in on hiring another former St. John’s player, Chris Mullin to actually take the position. This didn’t stop World Peace from trying, though.
He obviously knows the school and the ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ of everything there. It would have made Madison Square Garden a very interesting place to be, especially with people seeing him on the sidelines and not on the court. World Peace is just 35 years old, however, and is going to start playing for an Italian League club on Monday.
Maybe in a few years the job will open up again and he can take another chance at it.
