Bill Bayno Rumors
Adrian Wojnarowski: Detroit is finalizing deals to hire three new assistants to Dwane Casey’s staff: Boston’s Jerome Allen, ex-Indiana assistant Bill Bayno and Sacramento’s Rex Kalamian, sources tell ESPN. Kalamian, Bayno worked for Casey in Toronto. Allen interviewed for Celtics HC job last week.
J. Michael Falgoust: Justin Holiday on losing Bayno: “I was happy for him. A lot of things he’s been through, coming to this job & the stress this job brings on top of real-life stuff w/your family, @ some point, he had to decide if he would be able to share the stresses btw the 2.” #Pacers
Scott Agness: Statement from Nate Bjorkgren: “I appreciate the impact Coach Bayno has had on our players and the Pacers organization over the last five years. All of us at the Pacers wish him the very best as he transitions to his next chapter.”
Scott Agness: Pacers assistant coach Bill Bayno has been away fron the team since Jan. 25. He’s been through a lot in the last 18 months, including the death of his mother. He’s a social guy, so the isolation hasn’t helped. I hope he gets the help he needs.
