Phoenix Suns Name Earl Watson Interim Head Coach

The Phoenix Suns have a new head coach.

Temporarily, at least.

After firing head coach Jeff Hornacek on Monday, the Suns have decided to hand the reins to Earl Watson, per Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports:

Interim head coaching labels are always sort of iffy. You’re coaching to keep your job as a full-time head honcho next season, but not really. Teams usually go after flashier names over the summer, and there’s no indication yet whether the Suns will give Watson, who spent 13 years in the NBA as a player, a chance to retain his current position on a permanent basis.
