Coach Hollins' Whistle

Grizzlies coach's whistle now available as a ring-tone.


Grizzlies Coach Lionel Hollins is reputedly the loudest whistler in the NBA. He uses his piercing, two-finger blast to get the attention of his players amidst the noisy din of a game. And now, Coach Hollins can get your attention — every time your phone rings.

Hollins has teamed up with a few Memphis musicians to create three whistle ringtones you can download. Proceeds go to charity. Check it out at

There's even a video where Hollins talks about his unique whistle stylings. And, of course, you can follow Coach Hollins' Whistle on Twitter.
