    I wonder where he’ll decide to settle and raise his family

    Fingers crossed fingers crossed fingers crossed

    I believe, like all his coaches and teammates did too, that he makes others around him better and would be a credit to the community. In fact i Don’t think it would be a big stretch to see him riding point on a volunteer fire engine, ear to ear smile on his face and flag waving as they drive into the sun lit beyond.

    ... and now I want to commission a painting...

    I think it was CDC who said something about him being in Spokane.

    I know Sacre has a home in the Spokane area. When he is home (Spokane) he frequently shows up on 99.9 FM Coyote Country radio with Jay, Kevin and Slim. In fact on most Wednesday's he is on the whole show from 6am to 10am imparting all kinds of wit, wisdom, stories etc. If you are in the broadcast area I would suggest tuning in on Wednesdays. He is really a fun guy to listen to and at times dominates the show as you can well imagine.

    Default Retired from Playing, Maybe, but Not from Coaching

    "Former Gonzaga center Robert Sacre added his newest job title with the help of a few keystrokes on Twitter. When the Fraser Valley Bandits of the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) followed Sacre on Twitter, Sacre was quick to respond. "I sent them a joke, saying, 'Hey, if you need a head coach let me know,'" Sacre said. "That night I got a call from the president and we've been in contact and ..."

    And now meet the new assistant general manager for the Bandits, based in Abbotsford, British Columbia. Sacre grew up nearby in North Vancouver. He'll have a wide range of duties, including player personnel, recruiting and trying to keep talented Canadian players close to home. "My biggest thing is I wanted to give back to my hometown and my community and build basketball up in the Vancouver area," said Sacre, who played on Canadian national teams. "I'd love to be part of that.

    ...

    Sacre said he'll make trips to British Columbia, but Spokane will continue to be home. Sacre retired from professional basketball in 2019. He helped Gonzaga's fundraising efforts while completing his master's degree in organizational leadership. He operates Sacre Excavation and co-hosts the Bleav in the Zags podcast with GU alum Jack Ferris. "I'm grateful for what Gonzaga has done for me and my family," he said. "My business is going fantastic, I can't ask for a better crew. I got my degree and I thought I should put it to work, I can't just waste that on dirt work."
