Majerus Denies Denver His Services
(FortCollins-CO) The Denver Nuggets have reportedly offered former University of Utah coach Rick Majerus an assistant coaching position. Majerus coached Nuggets point guard Andre Miller back in the 90’s and at the same time coached Keith Van Horn, whom it has been rumored that the Nuggets are trying to coax to the Mile High City. Majerus has reportedly turned the job down saying, “ Karl offered me the job a month ago, but I can’t move to Denver right now” in a quote from the Rocky Mountain News. Majerus lives in Milwaukee and works as a college basketball analyst. He has a wife and stepped down from his position with the University of Utah due to health concerns. He also has an affinity for sweaters and fatty foods.
