The high school where Dwyane Wade’s son plays is currently looking for a head basketball coach.

The athletic director of American Heritage tweeted on Tuesday that the school was looking to fill the position.

The school is home to rising star Zaire Wade, son of Heat superstar Dwyane Wade.

Zaire is a junior.

His father said one of the reasons he intends to retire after this season, is to be able to watch his son’s games.

The younger Wade has attracted national attention in viral videos that show the lefty does have game.

I contacted the school to inquire why there is an opening and if Wade is at all connected to the job vacancy.

I have yet to receive a response to my inquiry.

Heritage has just over a month to fill the vacancy. Their first game is scheduled in late November.

Wade gets $100 million offer from Heat season-ticket holder

By: Andy Slater

Dwyane Wade may want to hold off on signing his new contract with the Chicago Bulls. The former Heat superstar has been offered $100 million to reverse his decision and stay in Miami, but there's a catch. 

A Miami Heat season ticket holder says he will pay Wade the big bucks if he hits Friday night's Mega Millions jackpot.

Kevin Wasielewski, 40, is a longtime Miami resident and also founder of Origin PC, a Miami-based computer company. He says he is serious about the offer. 

"I'll give Wade the offer he can't refuse," Wasielewski said. "I want him to retire in Miami." 

Wasielewski tweeted a picture of his Mega Millions ticket along with the offer to Wade. He didn't want to share the numbers he selected for the $540 million drawing, hoping no one else would play them ---  but he did give a hint of what Heat fans could root for.

"All of the numbers I picked are related to Wade," Wasielewski said.

Odds of hitting the Mega Millions jackpot are roughly 1 in 259 million. It's safe to say if a #3 ball doesn't get drawn Friday night, the odds of the offer to Wade are zero.
