The Phoenix Suns are still in search of a new head coach, but it sounds like they’re also interested in hiring Gonzaga’s Riccardo Fois as the team’s player development coach. Fois has quite of bit of experience with developing players. He’s served four years with Gonzaga’s men’s basketball staff as their Coordinator of Basketball Analytics and Video Operations.
