Jerry Stackhouse offers strong response to report linking him to NBA job
Jerry Stackhouse shot down a recent report linking him to an NBA head coaching job.
Eric Bossi of 247Sports reported this week that Stackhouse was “very interested” in the Detroit Pistons head coaching job. The Vanderbilt Hustler picked up the report, which got the attention of a Commodores fan.
Stackhouse responded to the fan’s tweet, telling her not to worry, calling the report “beguilement in the highest form.”
Don’t listen to these ?’s. It’s beguilement in the highest form. They have NO ACCESS to me or @VandyMBB so they choose to cater to the irrational and divisive 5.8% of Commodore Nation.⚓️⬇️ #BEUS #dontfallforit #sources

Stackhouse played in the NBA from 1995-to-2013. He was a member of the Pistons from 1997-to-2002, a period which includes his 2 selections as an NBA All-Star (2000, ’01).
Since April 2019, Stackhouse has been Vanderbilt’s head coach. The 2022-23 season was VU’s best under Stackhouse, as the Commodores went 22-15 overall and 11-7 in SEC play. Vandy was on the NCAA Tournament bubble but fell short of a bid. The Dores’ season ended in the NIT Quarterfinals.
Stackhouse has Vanderbilt basketball on an upward trajectory. Dores fans will be glad to hear he doesn’t appear to be leaving for the Pistons.
