"It's somewhat surreal to tell you the truth. It's really kind of strange, me coaching college basketball with him sitting next to me," Mullin said. "It's kind of cool though, I like it. People probably don't know he's been coaching for 15-16 years in the NBA. I've watched him as a coach. I know he'll get players and his program will be back on top."
"We know this was not an easy decision for Sid, so we are supportive of him as he strives to find the right fit," St. John's coach Chris Mullin said. "He is a good person and talented player who we wish the best as he begins his new journey."
