The Los Angeles Lakers are currently narrowing down potential candidates to fill their recently vacated head coaching position.

But while the likes of Steve Kerr and Tim Thibodeau, and UConn's Kevin Ollie are atop the current list to replace Mike D'Antoni at present no one saw this latest job application coming.

Current fans favorite Nick Young, aka Swaggy P, has put himself forward after taking to Twitter:

"I'll be the new coach," the shooting guard told his followers Wednesday afternoon.

Trust Swaggy P to make light of the Lakers turmoil, and with a positive attitude like his the franchise could do a lot worse.

OK we tried to make that sound serious, but lets face it there is about as much chance of Swaggy P becoming the new Lakers coach as Kobe Bryant heading a bid to buy the Clippers.

Young has undoubtedly been one of the few bright spots in a dark period for the Lakers but the 28-year-old should concentrate on keeping his on-court displays in shape, and practice those three-pointers, before he thinks of heading into coaching.
