I understand and agree with your comparison to the business world. I also know that even with experience, some people make great number 2's but then fail as a number 1. We hear the term that a person was over=promoted.
But sports does not always follow that. Besides Robin who I think will go ( or at least Manto), Jason Kidd is another one who went directly from player to coach. Mark Jackson also went from TV to coaching. Strange but maybe the transition in Sports is easier. But I agree that guys with little or no experience have probably had a poor success rate
