Phil Martelli's 4-Year-Old Grandson Is A Mini-Basketball Coach

Saint Joseph's coach Phil Martelli has a 4-year-old grandson named Philip, who's excellent at pretending to be a basketball coach. It's precious.


Philip's decked out in a suit—wearing an adult's necktie—and watching the game from the stands as he mimics Martelli's moves. When Martelli crosses his arms, Philip crosses his arms. When Martelli strokes his chin, Philip strokes his chin. Philip even has a whiteboard and marker, which he clutches as he screams. The kid's really learned every important part of being a college basketball coach.
