John Welch Rumors
Following the press conference, CSNCalifornia.com has confirmed that Chad Iske and John Welch have now been let go by the team. Both were brought on by former Kings head coach George Karl, so their release doesn’t come as a shock.
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.
