The Sidelines Pod: Josh Pastner

Georgia Tech head coach Josh Pastner joined The Sidelines with Evan Daniels to discuss his career, John Calipari, the pressure of coaching at Memphis, Georgia Tech and Kevin Garnett's recent comments about AAU.

First-year Georgia Tech head coach Josh Pastner was this week's guest on The Sidelines with Evan Daniels podcast.

Pastner, who also spent seven years as the head coach at Memphis, was candid during the conversation and discussed how he turned coaching an AAU team at the age of 17 into a scholarship at Arizona. 

Pastner and Daniels also touched on working for John Calipari and what makes him such a good recruiter. Then Pastner was very open about replacing Calipari at Memphis and the challenges and pressure that came with it. 

To go with all of that, Pastner, who is in conversation for national coach of the year, discussed his current team and his thoughts on Kevin Garnett's recent comment about AAU killing the NBA.
