Former UNC star Jeff McInnis becoming successful youth coach

From today's high school spring sports roundup:

Jeff McInnis, Team Charlotte AAU basketball: Former West Charlotte High/UNC/NBA point guard has become a successful youth coach. His 16U team won the prestigious Reebok Showdown Series last weekend in Winston-Salem – without a player taller than 6-foot-4. The team included Northside Christian guard Austin Dasent and Gaston Day’s Keyshawn Woods.

Jeff is a great guy, new to the aau scene. Problem is he does not develop talent, only acquires talent. Develop the talent and then we can say that he is a successful coach. Anyone can get talent.

You may want to go see him in action as a coach . Terrible role model and a complete jerk!! Ask any of the refs. I liked him as a tar heel too, but not now he is embarrassing and has no business coaching kids .

Jeff McInnis is a talent whore. He recruits the best players and doesn't coach them up. Then all of his players leave their public schools and end up at private schools. 12 of his 13 players on last year's team left their original school. I wonder if he is on retainer and gets a bonus to stear kids to private programs.

AAU coaches like McInnis give good coaches a bad name. He inflates kid's egos and makes them and their parents harder to deal with. He will tell them anything they want to hear just to get them to play for him.

Obviously most of these posters have Hate in their Heart and don't know the first thing about Coach Mcinnis. He gives more to these kids then most of their parents and continues to stay on them and make sure they develop and excell in school, life and on the court. They don't have grades they don't play but he doesn't push them away. He continues to encourage. The kids I've met look you in the eye and speak to you with respect which most of todays youth does not.

I watched Coach McInnis on ESPN and he completely overreacts on the sideline. The game became more of a show about him than the players competing. He needs to tone tone his sideline escapades because he is a role model to his players.

Haters are great for the soul. Don't judge a person till u get to know them. It's not how u start but how u finish.

Prior to getting to know Jeff and his coaching skills, I had heard a lot of discouraging things about him, BUT I must say he has a great heart for the kids and the game of basketball. He is very giving and loving toward them. You know we all have done things in our life we were not proud up, and some of us learned from those moments and others did not. Jeff definitely has learned from them days and why do people hold him to his mistakes or errors in life? What about your own errors, whose reminding you of yours. No one can change the past, but instead work on their future. And just like the Word of God says he without sin cast the first stone. NOONE is without sin! So stop casting stones!

Jeff was not over reacting in Florida on ESPN that was all heart you saw. Heart for the kids and heart for the game. I was there and we all were just as excited as he was. You viewed it your way for the hate in your heart. Others for the love of him and the kids viewed it as a passionate coach coaching his kids.
