The Golden State Warriors have promoted Aaron Miles, who has served as the head coach of the Santa Cruz Warriors for the past two seasons (2017-19), to player development coach on Steve Kerr’s staff with the Golden State Warriors. Additionally, Kris Weems has been named the new head coach of the Santa Cruz Warriors.
Weems will be the fourth head coach in Santa Cruz Warriors history, succeeding Miles (2017-19), Casey Hill (2013-17) and Nate Bjorkgren (2012-13). Weems, a Kansas City native, has served as an assistant coach for the NBA G League affiliate of Golden State for the past two seasons and is continuing his second stint with the Warriors organization, previously serving as a player development coach and scout from 2011-2014.
Over the last two NBA G League seasons, Miles earned a 57-43 record, including a league-high-tying 34-16 record and Pacific Division title in 2018-19. During his tenure, Miles guided five players to NBA G League Call Ups.
