Before the Linsanity, Peter Diepenbrock was leading a rather tranquil and domestic life, teaching four P.E. classes at Palo Alto (Calif.) High School and devoting the rest of his days to wife Janet and 6-year-old son John.

"Peaceful," was how he summed things up.

These days, the 48-year-old is frantically juggling national media spots, jet-setting across country and hobnobbing with Spike Lee.

"Out of control," is how he described his life Wednesday. "One thing after another. Completely turned upside down."

What do you expect when you're a confidant, friend and former high school basketball coach of the world's most talked-about athlete, Jeremy Lin?

Oh, Diepenbrock expected the interview requests when the undrafted and twice-cut Lin began his head-spinning transformation of the New York Knicks and NBA.

But front-row seats at Madison Square Garden the proclaimed World's Most Famous Arena?

Sitting next to New York's biggest fan Lee?

Both cheering on Diepenbrock's prized pupil?

"No, that's definitely not something I ever envisioned in my lifetime," Diepenbrock said.

But it's going to happen.

On Saturday, Diepenbrock is scheduled to fly to New York City and sit courtside for Sunday's nationally-televised game with Dallas.

Lin's Palo Alto high school teammates Kheaton Scott, Kevin Trimble and Brian Baskauskas will also make the cross-country trip but can't afford the $7,000 price tag for a front-row seat.

"We're not sitting nose-bleed either," Scott said. "We're coming too far for that."

Diepenbrock said it wasn't Lin who set him up with the seats, but rather "a friend of a friend of a friend."

He's already made connections with Lee, however, through Michael Kay's ESPN radio show out of New York. It was one of more than a dozen interviews Diepenbrock gave Wednesday.

"I told (Kay) I had only one goal going back to New York and that was to see Spike Lee wear Jeremy Lin's high school jersey," Diepenbrock said. "Five minutes after I finished the segment, (ESPN producers) called me back and said it's a done deal."

Lee evidently called the show and set it up. He'll wear it Friday night when the Knicks host New Orleans, meaning Diepenbrock will have to courier the jersey before he gets there.

"I'm just worried it's going to leave the country and someone will sell it on eBay for $100,000," Diepenbrock joked.

Diepenbrock has been one of Lin's closest friends and staunchest supporters since the two led Palo Alto to a 2006 state championship. The two spoke almost daily, Diepenbrock said, before Lin burst into the national scene on Feb. 4.

As of the last week, however, as Lin's star reached Zenith proportions, the two communicate by text daily.

Though worried the media onslaught will take its toll, Diepenbrock said Lin is in very good hands those of Lin's mother Shirley.

"She makes sure he's getting his rest, eating right," Diepenbrock said.

Nutrition and sleep are helping for sure. But nothing can explain Lin's unfathomable run of scoring and clutch play, capped Tuesday with a 3-pointer to beat Toronto.

"I honest don't think I've ever screamed louder for a made shot," said Diepenbrock, known for his impassioned sideline antics as a coach. "Obviously those who know Jeremy best knew he always had a lot of guts. He showed in every tough game we were ever in."
