As I've said many times, I've been a basketball fan for my entire life. I watch it constantly, I tweet about it incessantly, I dream about it.

So, now that Marist's men's basketball head coach Jeff Bower has resigned in order to take a position with the Detroit Pistons, I've decided to throw my hat in the ring and generously let them know that my services are available. Not only am I basketball lover, I, myself, am a Red Fox, having graduated from Marist just a few years ago.

Who better to coach the team than a guy who grew up in the Hudson Valley, graduated from the school, loves basketball, and would require all players to have Shawn Kemp flattops and throwback Reeboks? No one, that's who. No one.

Below, you will find the opening shots of my campaign to become the Marist men's basketball head coach. Let's make this dream a reality with #CoachDeuce on twitter.
