Eric Hughes Rumors
The Philadelphia 76ers announced today that Dave Joerger, Sam Cassell and Dan Burke have joined Doc Rivers’ bench as assistant coaches. Popeye Jones, Eric Hughes and Brian Adams have also been named to Rivers’ coaching staff, while Pete Dominguez has been added as coaching associate. Additionally, Todor Pandov has taken on the role of assistant coach/performance director.
“After taking this job, one of my top priorities was forming the best staff in the NBA,” Rivers said. “I’m thrilled with the way it came together as this group boasts years of valuable NBA experience, both playing and coaching, and each member brings a championship-level mindset to the table. I’m confident in my staff’s ability to best support our players and look forward to getting into the lab with our team as soon as we get the green light.”
During a session with the media on Thursday at the team’s practice facility, Jabari Parker mentioned that Bucks assistant Frank Johnson had been let go, making him the third coach — along with Eric Hughes and Tim Grgurich — released in the wake of head coach Jason Kidd’s firing Monday.
