Jason Terry wants to be a coach

A new role for the JET?
Jason Terry isn't suggesting he'd like to be the coach (like Antoine Walker did on twitter), but Doc Rivers' departure has given the veteran good reason to assess his situation in Boston.  Here's what Terry had to say in a piece by the Boston Herald's Mark Murphy this morning:
“The reason I came to Boston was the opportunity to win another championship and to play for Doc Rivers. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo were there. I wanted to be part of Celtics lore and tradition." 
"I’m thinking about my future, too, and I want to be a coach. I learned a lot from Doc last year. Next season I’m still going to be under Danny (Ainge), and it will be an opportunity for me to learn his side of the business. This is still a great organization to be part of.”

Murphy goes on to say that the Celtics Orlando summer league team will be led by Jay Larranaga, who is currently the only coach under contract with Boston.  Because of this Terry has been asked to "help out" as well.  Obviously Terry is not retiring now in order to pursue a coaching dream in a Jason Kidd like manner, but it definitely appears as if he'd like to head in that direction sometime soon.
