There were rumors circulating that Penny Hardaway would be becoming the head coach at Memphis & Shelby County Schools’ East High School – it’s not true.
Hardaway says he’s not interested in a job at East High School and is instead enjoying life playing golf and traveling.
The Memphis native does coach middle school and is an AAU coach part-time, but tells WMCTV News 5 that if he wanted to get a full-time job on the bench he would call his own conference so all would know.
So there you have it, the rumors of Penny Hardaway coaching basketball at East High was just hearsay as the former NBA star is only a part-time coach and is enjoying life full-time.
The closest thing to you seeing Penny Hardaway at East High School may be when one of the high school students are ‘sporting’ a pair of kicks from Penny Hardaway’s Air Penny sneaker line with Nike.
Meanwhile, while enjoying life, Penny Hardaway was led to Yo Gotti’s new PRIVÉ Restaurant & Lounge recently, which the former NBA star says will become his new regular spot.
Gotti’s PRIVÉ Restaurant recently launched in East Memphis, as reported on MemphisRap.com.
