John Welch Rumors
The Sacramento Kings has signed Chad Iske as associate head coach and John Welch, Anthony Carter, and Nancy Lieberman as assistant coaches, according to Kings Vice President of Basketball and Franchise Operations Vlade Divac. Iske, Welch, Carter and Lieberman join Corliss Williamson and Vance Walberg on George Karl’s staff.
The Brooklyn Nets are no longer spending as extravagantly as they once did and their announcement of staff promotions on Monday is just the latest example. Steve Jones, formerly the team’s manager of video operations, replaces veteran assistant coach John Welch, who departed for Sacramento. Trevor St. Agathe, formerly an intern with the team two seasons ago, replaces veteran strength and conditioning coach Jeremy Bettle, who left for a similar position with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Mike Mazzeo: Sources: Assistant coach John Welch is officially gone from the #Nets, and presumably taking same position in Sacramento under George Karl. Welch was a key player development guy for Brooklyn. @Scott Howard-Cooper had earlier reported he was likely to leave to join Karl.
