Seattle Supersonics Head Coaches

I’m working on a mammoth Supersonics project, so I figured in the interim, I’d toss in some reference nuggets along the way.  The following is the list of Seattle Sonics head coaches from 1967 – 2008.  The ultimate plan for this page is to do a quality review of all of these head coaches; a little more in-depth than many of the Wikipedia pages you can find on these guys, as far as they relate to the history of the Sonics.

You’ll be able to find all my Seattle Sonics History stuff in the upper menu bar, as it becomes available.
