Even as a player on the 2005-2006 NBA Finals Dallas Mavericks squad Darrell Armstrong was already taking the coaching posture on the sideline.

He discussed it with the media today after his first practice with the team:

"I am glad to be back and hopefully starting a long coaching career. Even when I played here I was almost like an assistant coach. Avery (Johnson) used me a lot. He always told me that he didn't mind me talking to the guys in the huddle because I was trying to tell them the truth. If we needed to pick it up on defense or if we needed an extra pass that is something I always said. I am just happy to be here and looking forward to the challenge and the opportunity ahead of me."
