New Vanderbilt basketball coach Jerry Stackhouse wasn’t going to take just any job.

The former North Carolina star played in the NBA for many years and then transitioned into the world of coaching. It was a seamless transition, as he led Raptors 905 to an NBA D-League (now G-League) title during the 2016-17 season. He would land with the Memphis Grizzlies as an assistant for the 2018-19 campaign, and everyone figured the next move for Stackhouse would be the big one – becoming an NBA head coach.
