Darren Erman Rumors

The Boston Celtics are hiring former assistant coach Darren Erman as the head coach of their Maine Red Claws G-League affiliate, sources tell The Athletic. The Celtics, who announced a deal to purchase the Red Claws on Thursday, will make Erman the latest head coach in a spot that has often been a pipeline to Boston. Erman succeeds Brandon Bailey, who was promoted to the Celtics bench this month after two seasons in Maine. Celtics assistant coach Scott Morrison preceded Bailey and Celtics director of player personnel Austin Ainge served as the Red Claws’ first head coach.
