Vermes Official

As speculated last night, the Wizards have officially removed the interim tag from Peter Vermes and he is now the Wizards "new" head coach. My reservations from last night still stand. I'm worried about the fact that on the surface there appears to be no change from last year. Most of these players are Vermes' players and while he's said there will be a roster overhaul it's hard to see how that overhaul will actually take place.

I personally would have liked to have seen some new blood/new ideas brought in to try to switch things up a bit. But I understand to a point why the team did it, they probably don't want to have to deal with another 2-3 "rebuilding" years as a new coach brings in "his" players. This does put all the pressure on Vermes now, he is the sole public figure in the creation of this team, he doesn't have a coach below him like last year. If this team doesn't produce than it's all on Vermes and he'll have to be the next one to go.
