Larry Coon is a computer scientist by both education and trade. He works as an IT Director at University of California, Irvine, and has also taught university Computer Science courses, specializing in database theory. A lifelong NBA fan, he assimilated a working knowledge of the league’s salary cap and trade rules, eventually organizing this knowledge into the Salary Cap FAQ to provide “the kind of reference I was looking for when I was trying to figure it all out.”
Larry has been featured in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Sports Illustrated. He makes regular media appearances including television (such as ESPN’s “Outside the Lines”) radio and podcasts. He is a regular contributor to ESPN.com, the New York Times Off the Dribble blog, and to Hoopsworld.com. He is often quoted and cited, both online and in print, by local and national media venues. His work also appears on RealGM.com.
Larry lives in Orange County, California with his wife and 14 year old daughter, about whom he brags at every possible opportunity.
