At the urging of coach George Karl, the Nuggets coaching staff opened up their playbooks to about 20 coaches from Colorado State University, Metro State College, the University of Colorado, the University of Denver, the University of Northern Colorado and the University of Wyoming. The Air Force Academy coaching staff also was invited but could not attend because of scheduling conflicts.
"George wanted to keep our minds active and focused on basketball," said Nuggets advance scout/assistant coach Jesse Mermuys, who coordinated the event. "Coach is also about giving back to the game of basketball. Giving back to your state is pretty big-time. It could help the college guys and it could help us as well."

Colorado Coaches Sit Down With Nuggets Coaches
A cool story and I am sure a very neat experience for some college coaches from around the Colorado area, as they were invited to sit down with George Karl and the Denver Nuggets coaching staff. The panel of coaches included BJ Hill and Northern Colorado assistants.
