76ers Reportedly Hire Brett Brown as Head Coach

And the 76ers’ extended hunt for a head coach has finally come to a close. According to Sports Illustrated, Philadelphia has hired Brett Brown for the next four years: “Brett Brown, a longtime San Antonio Spurs assistant and head coach of Australia at the 2012 Olympics, has agreed to become the Philadelphia 76ers’ new coach, a league source told SI.com. The 52-year-old Brown will receive a four-year guaranteed contract, a crucial investment by the Sixers as they embark on an extended overhaul of their roster with a new management team. They’ve positioned themselves to contend for the No. 1 pick in next year’s draft after trading All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday to New Orleans. Brown joined the Spurs as a player development director in 2002. He has been an assistant on the bench under Gregg Popovich for the last seven seasons.”

    Do the spurs have anymore assistant coaches lol? I don’t think these spurs assistants now head coaches will pan out. all I can think about was bill belliceck, and all his assistants were suppose to be geniuses Romeo crennel, Eric mangini, the old notre dame coach got there chance and failed miserably, nothing like the real thing baby. bit good luck to them though

    The Sixers will now be the place Australian players get jobs in the NBA. Watch Joe Ingles ride the pine for a season next year.
