The Jacksonville Sharks are on the search for a General Manager.  We have been very successful thus far, but we have not won it all yet.  I believe we have the team to do that.  It's time to get over the hump, however I won't hire just anybody.  The Sharks are a family oriented organization and I am looking for a General Manager with similar values.

I am pleased to announce that the Jacksonville Sharks have hired Gooch as our General Manager.  We firmly believe GM Gooch shares our core values and can lead this team to a championship.

Thank you very much! I'm going to get better acquainted with this, but I need to talk to Coach Ford. Will you send him in?

----------------------
Coach Ford, great to finally meet you in person. I'm still familiarizing myself with our team, but I would like your input. How do you feel about this team going into this season?

With the current players we have, I believe we have a solid foundation with some rotational depth.  Nick Duckrey is a pretty good point guard who will most likely retire at the end of his contract.  I believe we will be okay with him starting the next two seasons.  Esmond Dumas is a capable back-up and still young so he can develop.  He has great size and is one of the most athletic players in the league.  Definitely someone we can train over the next two seasons and hope he turns into Duckrey's replacement. 

We need to add shooting guard depth at both the starter level and the bench.  Casey Sheppard has a scorer's mentality and has a beautiful outside stroke.  His three point shooting truly strikes fear in the defense.  He's a great team player and has a great understanding of the game. He won the 3-point Shooting Contest at the All-Star festivities this past season. A  true shooter.

Our front court is where we need to improve the most.  Jack Johnson is a solid center, though he is undersized.  I prefer he play the power forward position if at all possible.  He can jump out of the gym and can get to the rim in traffic.  He's also a solid defender.

Good deal. I like what I'm hearing.

Tell me about our coaching staff. What do you like, what don't you like? We have flexibility in our cap that if we need to make a move we can.

GM Gooch, you're the boss and what not, but I'd prefer to keep the staff we have intact for at least the upcoming season. All of our coaches are well-rounded coaches.  Coach Payne is a defensive coach though.  That is where his specialty lies.

We will keep the staff in place if that is what you want.

What do you feel your strengths are as a coach? What type of players play into those strengths? I know those are deep questions but I want to bring players in here that will fit what you need for success. We've seen success in the past with this franchise, I just want to be made aware of these things so I can bring the right players in for your system.

Not to toot my own horn, but I'm widely considered the best coach in the league.  I am a mastermind at crafting game strategy and I am both an offensive and defensive guru.  I can make any player fit into what we want to do.

Coach Ford, I'm working on finishing things up for the offseason, but I have a few questions.

How many minutes were our starters playing last season? I want to make sure I have the balance that you want going into the season. I signed quite a few rookies, as well, so I don't now how you feel would get them the best development.

At PF, I didn't know if we should slot in Thomas Smith or start with experience with Mario Norwood.

Sheppard played 34 per game, the rest were around 28.  Norwood might be the safer bet, however I'm not opposed to starting Smith given the rest of starting lineup are seasoned vets.

Would Norwood make a good 6th man? I wasn't sure if we wanted to pull in Dumas as the 6th.

Starters I have right now are Duckery/Brown/Sheppard/Smith/Johnson. Does that look right to you?

Do we have any guys who are going to get bent out of shape if I put them in a bad spot? I'm blind to most of the team and I don't want to end up shipping someone out that thought they were 7th and end up 10th.

Norwood or Dumas should work.  I would go with Norwood first, but I think both of them leading our second team is in our best interests since we have a bunch of young guys.  Nobody should get too bent out of shape.  I think our guys understand their roles pretty well.

What have been some of the successful PR campaigns in the past. I still don't know these players very well at all and I don't want to saddle them with something they will hate and adversely effect their morale.

They understand that you just got here and that you do not know them yet.  If you come up with something they do not like, it won't be the end of the world.

GM Gooch, here is our Season 4 team sheet.  My dad wanted me to remind that your contract is for 3 years, non-guaranteed, and your goal for this season is to make the CONFERENCE FINALS.
